Seen a hive beetle today!!!! Question?!
So today we checked on the bees since it was 70 degrees. They had a little bit of patty left and that was good to see. I pulled out a couple frames and I seen a hive beetle going in and out of empty brood holes!!!! I got it out and didn't see any more. I removed the patty that was in there and put a fresh one in. Very small slits of it. But I am worried it has laid eggs.
My question is, what now???? Does that mean I have an infestation of them since I seem one??? I pulled more frames out and didn't see any more. But I am worried. I only seen it in one of the hives. Do I remove all of the patties??????? They need the food
Thanks in advance.
