    If I had hives in the shade like that in Missouri there would be so many Beetles they would have absconded and and I mean even if they're strong nucs or ten frame deeps.I had some abscond due to heat so I moved some to where it got shade in the evening, they went from a couple Hive beetles to loaded, stressing the bees Plum out, and the bees left within 3 days of placing them there.Cds don't work for me , beetle blasters don't catch hardly any for me,Crisco a joke,acv joke, I think you just sold some of these ,proofs in the pudding..Thanks for sharing

    From the packaging the bait looks like Combat Max. Not approved for use in hives in Arkansas unfortunately.

    Great video! How can you be certain, with so many dead beetles, that none have laid eggs and gone to their larval stage? My understanding is that the small hive beetle larvae destroy the hive.

    I guess I'm going to have to give up on the homemade boric acid bait. I've tried a few different recipes and have had zero luck. I'm going to have to try the roach bait gel, and hope it does the trick. Using Swifter sheets, beetle buster oil traps and the homemade bait in traps on the bottom board, and using demetrius earth and Gardstar 40 on the ground around the hive stands ….and I'm still losing ground to SHB this year.

    Hey John are you still using the bait in the syringe?Seems like a great way to go or have you moved on to other treatment tricks .Let me know please thanks S.D.

  19. Thanks for your comprehensive presentation! As new bee keepers, we did not know of all the different ways to trap beetles. You saved us a lot time and effort showing the up and downsides of the different methods.
