  4. Re: For those who have dealt with an SHB infestation....

    All my hives have the SBB with oil traps, just not having much luck catching the problems in a timely manner this year.
  5. Re: For those who have dealt with an SHB infestation....

    Also, saw a couple posts where people said they "rinsed the infested frames off", how? Just run them under a faucet? How do you rinse frames without destroying what comb is left?

    Thanks, burns, I believe that the queen excluder is the biggest con in the bee market. I have a few, never been used, wood bound metal. I decided I wanted to go treatment free, and along the way...

    Re: Queen in the Honey Super

    Get rid of the Queen Excluder, there is no reason to have one in a hive. And your experience just proved it, you trapped the queen above in the honey super which was detrimental to your hive. If...
