    Hi tecumseh,
    I'm not sc-bee but the big jug is apple cider vinegar and from what I can read the other bottle(the small one)is mineral oil.

    and whatis the deal?
    the vinegar attacts them and the oil kill's the?
    have you attempted to empty and re-fill it after it's full of dead beetles and the comb is drawn out?
    looks like it might get a little tricky

    Like you say they may draw out around (or most likely will) around the trap over an extended period of time. A lot would probably be drone comb. Remove the drone brood and check for varroa if need to.
    The trap sits on one frame and is located next to a chamber wall. The top pops off easy and is simple to refill etc. I entered the colony it was in yesterday and there were no more beetle in the trap than my last entry. But, I only saw two beetle during my inspection [img]smile.gif[/img] .
