Re: A Different kind of SHB trap
TooFarGone - I suspect that you are correct in that the beetle baffles and my device might make a combination which is more effective than either one by itself.
The beetle jail is indeed the entrance trap that I was refering to earlier. I should get one just to try although all of the oil traps that I have used in the past had the same drawback - they get sooo nasty. Especially in hot weather when the beetles are at their peak.
None-the-less these have me thinking about ways that I can make my idea work better. IF the baffles are as effective as they claim (Of which I am naturally skeptical, but still it's worth trying) then together we may be on to an effective, low maintenance control.
Don't let what might be best prevent you from doing what will work.
