    Anyone use the "West Small Hive Beetle Trap" sold by some of the bee supply companies? If so, does it work? Pros? Cons?... Thanks Randy

    I bought a couple to put on the most infested hives this summer. They work great. The only drawback I found is the inability to reduce the size of the entrance without making a custom reducer.

    I have some of the West traps and they work. As mentioned above you have a full sized entrance unless you improvise your own reducer. The extra labor in cleaning out the traps every few weeks is not significant unless you have a lot of hives/yards to take care of. This thread discusses SHB and the West trap is mentioned.
