    Default Treating Small Hive Beetle Inside or Outside the Hive

    I have noticed a few SHB in my hives. I've also read on this forum that you don't want to attract SHB TO your hives, but given that there are already some there, should put traps in the hives? Or put them 600 or so feet away?

    Default Re: Treating Small Hive Beetle Inside or Outside the Hive

    I had some melons that turned bad on me. Next day, they had some of the usual bugs, including SHBs. I put a screen on top of one, sprinkled it with Boric Acid and the next few days, it was beautifully full of dead bugs. I do not know if I helped my hives or not, but a dead beetle is a good beetle on my book.
