I have been trying for years to try and source the queen
pheromone(E)-9-oxodec-2-enoic acid,( i think). so I can indentify the drone congregation area in vicinity to my apiary but to no avail.
loads of information on the web but no suggestions as to where I can buy it.
Can anybody help me out please."
I hold a couple of queen rearing demos in my apairy each year and it would be something extra to do on the day, to go on a walk and find the drone congregration areas. keith

I think there is a company in Lancashire who may stock it.
I will try and dig out the telephone number.
