Small Hive Bettle Trap

Small Hive Bettle Trap

Refillable, washable SHB trap.

Fill the middle section with vegemite or apple cider vinigar or a mixture of both. Then half fill the middle section with sunflower or a mild vegetable oil. (olive oil is too strong smelling for the bees)

Hive beetle tend to hide up under the lid, so place the 2 traps in which ever the top box is, placing the hooks over the first fram on each side with the trap itself sliding down between the first frame and the wall of the hive. 

If you have a Flow super on top you will need to reverse this and hook the traps over the actual wall of the hive instead.
