    Default Question about SHB's...

    Will Butyric acid Honey Robber... Bee-go... or any other honey robber products cause the SHB's to leave the hive along with the bees? Just curious... anyone ever see it?
    Thanks

    I use Butyric acid twice a year and never observed SHB fleeing the hive. I have also used MAQS twice now and never observed SHB leaving. Note that I said observed, cause they are rather small and I could have missed it.

    No, its very common to see them in the extracting supers in the honey house. Even if it did though they would just fly back.

    Yup I had that problem last year. This year those supers are going into the deep freezer for 24 hours after getting extracted.
