    Default Would Amitraz kill SHB

    I recall that one of the pesticides is labeled for Varroa and Small Hive Beetle.
    Has anyone heard whether Amittraz may impact SHB?

    No, at least not at a level that you should be using in a hive. Check Mite (Coumaphos) will kill shb but to be effective at all the strips must be used stapled under a black corrugated piece of plastic. Frankly, though, I am surprised they still sell the stuff and I sure wouldn't recommend using it.
