New Beekeeper hear in Central Ar. I have two hives started from 5 frame nucs, hives are less then 2 weeks old. Did inspection last Thur, hives looked strong and did not see any small hive bettles but installed bettle jail traps and also have a screen bottom board with a tray for vegetable oil, filled it last week. Checked trays yesterday and noticed about 15 to 20 dead SHB in each tray.
Is there more I should do?
Does this seem like a high number so fast?
I have a Neighbor that has hives about a block away, could they be from his hives or did I bring them with me in the nucs?
I was expecting to see SHB hear in Arkansas but it seem like a lot and they moved in faster then I thought they would.
Thanks for any help.
