Split with Hive beetle Larvae
I made a split from brood comb that a cut-out hive I did absconded with eggs, brood and honey from one of my hives. What has become notice is an infestation of SHB larvae having a ball with some of the comb. I have a cd case trap at the bottom full of beetles and larvae... What else should I do?
Re: Split with Hive beetle Larvae
Once you have SHB larvae I believe those frames that are infested are basically lost (and maybe the entire split) & you need to get them out ASAP. If you want to salvage the frame, shake off to the extent that you can the SHB larvae, place it in a plastic bag & freeze it for a couple of days...............
