SHB 3 Home Team 0
Well, my first year back in bees turned into a disaster. I have been trying to get rid of SHB for a couple of months now. Now the SHB have solved the current problems for me. All 3 hives absconded and full of SHB larvae. Wax Moth was just starting to move in. Robbing taking place in ernest. The only thing I can see different to do next year is to put the hives in full sun and use some kind of trap. The only place on my property for full sun is in the back yard. I really didn't want the hives that close to where children could be playing. Oh well, I will clean up the equipment and salvage the boxes and frames for next year.
