Do a quick search for placing and using swarm traps.  Personally I use 5 frame deep boxes 6"-7" foot high, in full shade and bait them with old comb and a couple drops of lemongrass oil.  Others will have other things they swear by.

I get mine from Whole Foods if you have one in your area. About $7 for a little bottle that goes a long way.

Exactly.  I bought mine about 5 years ago.  About $5 in a tiny 1+oz bottle.  I've still got over 1/2 left and I use it every year.  A couple drops goes a loooong way.
