Bullseye, Rat, Bugman and other Kansas Beekeepers> have you guys sent in any insect samples to the KSU Entomology Dept. for SHB testing? I just sent some critters in and found out they were a related insect, but not SHB. Mine are Carpophilis lugubris, some sort of common 'sap beetle' instead of SHB.
I'm glad to see KSU doing some work in bees again. Honey bees have taken a back seat to other insect studies over the last 30 years or so there. Since Ohio State is closing its bee research lab and other bee labs may be in jeapordy.
I was relieved with their news on what I thought may have been a SHB situation, but still have some VMites to deal with in a few hives.
