Hello, i was wondering if anyone could tell me what chemical or anything i can use that will not kill the bees but that will make them leave to a new location i may use to rid a swarm that is here year after year when i can't get to the queen?
A beekeeper came over and charged me 150.00 to put these strips in the areas and the bees flew off, not a trace of one at all. Any idea at what he used?

I have no idea what these "strips" where.

I have heard stories about using something like honey robber,  but have no experience myself.

i know that essential oil of Citronel will keep certain bugs off of you, such as mosquitos and ticks, but...the bees somehow love the lemony smell, so i'm not sure if citronel works for bees to..mybe i oughta try it someday.

Since one of the ingredients is citral and that is also in Nasanov, I wouldn't count on it.

Fischer's Bee Quick seems to discourage them a lot, moth crystals seem to drive them out.  Whatever you use you'll still have honey in the wall and it will give out after time.
