Iddee: Yea, I know, I was just funnin' with y'all. I've learned so much from this site that I know a joke wouldn't get played like that unless it was in the humor section.
And even then, it's pretty obvious!
For me, who has never used alcohol for more than sterilizing, however, it was an initial shock to realize that it could be used in this fashion. Of course, we use alcohol to preserve bees when we ship them off for testing, so it makes sense that the queens pheromones would be preserved and could be used later, too.
It's one of the reasons we all come here and discuss things, right? To learn new things and to learn how to look at some things differently for a new perspective.
Thanks, again, everyone, for the information I'm continually absorbing!
