    Default Killed over 100 SHB

    I put a Dadant screened bottom board with West beetle trap on a strong new hive and have drowned 100 beetles in little over a week. Hive doing ok, fighting back, but how can a hive survive such an onslaught?

    100 beetles in a week is not very much, I have heard of numbers 2500 in a week before, this is what I would use if my bee's could deal with them, BEEKEEPING,Bees,SMALL HIVE BEETLES,Beetle trap filling,install Beekeepers Honeybees Beehives Georgia

    They fly in at dusk, if the bees are driving them down into the trap, there is reason to be optimistic.

    The bees here are increasingly aggressive with them.
    Every beetle drowned is x number of larvae not in your hive.
