Lemongrass Oil

26   |  

Super-useful, lemongrass essential oil is what is used to lure swarms to bait hives. It mimics the pheromone that scout bees release when looking for a new home and has been said to double your chances at luring a swarm to a hive or trap. Just put a couple drops of the oil inside the entrance of your hive and wait! You can also refresh the oil weekly to keep the scent fresh.

If you've already got a hive without bees, you may as well bait it with lemongrass and see what happens, while you pursue other avenues of obtaining bees (catching a swarm, buying a package, etc.). The 1 ounce bottle of 100% pure lemongrass oil will last for years to come!

Purchase of Lemongrass oil

I haven't used it yet. Nor have I used the beeswax just purchased from you folks. I'm hoping to attract a swarm, but the weather here hasn't the best! Jim

I got the hive late

I got the hive late in the season so I have not assembled it yet, looks as though it is complete but would have liked more info on assembly - looks like I need a measuring tape to identify each piece to put the hive together
