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.
