    Question Which bottom board beetle trap works best?

    I am getting ready to order beetle traps for my hives and was wanting peoples opinions and experiences.

    I am looking at the Freeman trap, the IPK Small hive beetle trap from greenbeehives.com and the trap from betterbee.

    The main difference I see is the size and material of the pan. Does anyone have any positives or negatives to help me make this decision?

    Also are there beetle traps for nucs out there?

    check your local grocery store, they make disposable aluminum cookie sheets that are the right size and they are only a dollar or two

    Thanks, guys. I actually went and picked up some nucs from Don (fatbeeman) on monday and forgot to ask him. I thought that he used old political signs and poison, but I may be off base there. He was a lot of fun!

    Americas beekeeper, how do you retrofit the cookie pans?

    I use Freemans and they work just fine, since I bought mine he has made them even better with more options.
