    Hi there. Yes we have had small hive beetles in Indiana in Laporte County. Which is right by the Indiana Michigan State Line and there was some in another area once. I know that they used guardstar drench for the ground around the hives. Here are some links to some information on SHB.

    In American Bee Journal, Feb 04, p89, is an article that describes a SHB control method.

    Have you done a search? (Here and Internet)

    I read (maybe club newsletter) that SHB are not in Indiana, but better be prepared.
