Intersting discovery with SHB Today!
I have had problems with them in the past. I have screened bottom boards, so to help keep them out I had cut political signs and stuck them under. Well they will be spraying the field close by tomorrow so I blocked them in and took the signs out for ventilation. Well every one of them was full of beetle larva and beetles. So instead of keeping them out I gave them a perfect breeding grounds! I am scared to look inside tomorrow evening when I let them loose again. One of the hives is booming the queen is laying from one side of the frame to the other in about six frames in each deep (two deeps). I might be getting some guardstar and check mite depending on how bad they are, never used either before. Lesson learned!
All beekeepers can agree on one thing, and that one thing is, that all beekeepers can't agree on one thing.
