I'm not talking about lemongrass oil, but would growing lemongrass all over your yard make more swarms head your way? My swarm trap is going to be on a post surrounded by a tree in the field. We're planting a lot of stuff this year, and I wonder if planting lemongrass in a few strategic places would attract more swarms to the area. And then maybe the stronger oil will attract them to the hive?

If you want to attract swarms to a general area, the best idea would simply be to make it somewhere with lots of good forage that would attract bees in general.

I just planted some dragon's blood stonecrop in some of my scrub areas for exactly that reason.
