    Default Small Hive Beetle Question..................

    I found SHBs in my hives today - It's October 22 in central Virginia - days in the 60's nights in the 40's - Should I do some kind of treatment? Hives are strong. Any advise? - Thanks very much..............

    I'd leave them alone. It'll be cool and then cold before youy know it.

    They will ride out the winter in the cluster. Last week, I placed 1/2 a piece of Mite Away + under a piece of plastic in a couple of hives that had a few too many SHB's for my liking. One week later, not a SHB in the hive.
