Any commercial lure will work, but a few drops of lemongrass oil will work about as well. An old piece of drawn comb will help tremendously, if available. They work best mounted with the entrance facing east to south, 8 to 10 feet above the ground. The swarm normally travels from 100 feet to 1/4 mile from their old home.
