    Default Crikey, could this be a world record SHB kill?

    DSCN1152.JPG

    Attached photo shows beetles that ensnared in a trap that sits on top of the honey frames. A quick estimate is that there is somewhere around 700 dead beetles in the trap.

    Tell us how to set that up Please! Looks like polyester fiber over a queen excluder with some foam core board spacers - but it looks to me like you've hit on something that works whatever it is.

    Isn't that a layer of those cloths that are available for household use in Australia? (chux, or something like that?) I've heard good things, and clearly they work.

    Is it aquarium filter mat on top of a bee excluder?

    How can a hive have that many beetles and NOT be overrun with larvae? Is this a joke?

    Aha! My Googlefu has come through for me. http://www.dpi.nsw.gov.au/__data/ass...nt-options.pdf Page 4

    And here is a thread on the felt type material and use; http://www.honeybeeworld.com/forum/v...t=276&start=10 I'm pretty sure i've seen these at Walmart.

    The felt look's a lot like the handy wipes we use to get for kitchen cleaning?
    I will be at WalMart tomorrow so I am going to be looking to see what I can find.

    Just looked on WalMart's sight and Yes they have Handi Wipes and they look just like the photo of the one in the link in crsswift70's post.

    Attaching more photos of the material. It is a type of table protector with thin vinyl/plastic on one side and a polyester weave on the underside which entangles the beetles. It is not a Chux.

    The hive was heavily infested and I placed it under the lid on top of the honey super frames with the polyester side uppermost. From memory I bought it from a Spotlight store here in Australia, sometime ago, and you can Google them to see the type of stock a business like this carries.

    I know that some of you need trauma counselling when you see just a couple of beetles in your hives but this hive was teeming with the little blighters and the hive was, in my view, teetering on the edge of a SHB takeover. The trap was on the hive for about 4 weeks.

    It occurs to me that some of that on top of a mite count board might have some real possibility.
