    Default Small Hive Beetle found in Wyoming!

    Hello all,
    This is somewhat of an announcement. We have just discovered SHB in quite a few of our hives, in spite of the the fact the there was supposed NO SHB in the state of Wyoming. They came in with 100 nucs from Steven Coy in the Mideast. What is the recommended way of treating these pests? Please input. Thanks in advance!

    Traps in the hive and then put something under the hive to catch the larvae coming out to pupate. Screened water pan with some oil in it (screened so the bees can't get in it). Smash all the ones you see. The catch probably isn't necessary, but it might help monitor reproduction. They pupate in the ground though so you can put a barrier down to keep them contained as well.

    You might call your state entomology dept like NOW? A frost should kill any not in the hive .
