Thank you all for your responses. I was hoping there would be some people from around my area on here.
I probably will just go ahead with the lemongrass to start out with since it is easily accesible to purchase locally.
Are there that many swarms around east Tennessee? I know that is a big area, but I have never seen a swarm or wild hive? Then again I haven't been looking for them untill late last year either.
If I may ask another question, I plan on applying this Lemongrass oil to the swarm box entrace. Is this ok? Will it last for a while just smearing it on the wood, or do I need to reapply it every so often?
G3farms, I am just north of you. In Clinton, about 35 miles north of Knoxville. I do work in Knoxville though.
Thanks again for all your help.
