RE: [midyorkbeekeepers] lemongrass oil
- I came home from work, got out of the truck, and found 1 bee buzzing around the hive, maybe attracted to the scent of the oil, then gone. An hr later I found 1 bee again spending a little more time looking for an opening, then gone again. Makes me wonder if i MIGHT be on the right track.

I have one of my hives set up and I have the lemongrass oil. Where do you reccommend applying it and how much. If I remember, it is applied to a qtip or paper but where do you usually leave that? On top of the frames? On the inside cover?
