    Default I have a box elder bug problem

    I have a elder box bug problem, they seem to love my hive and the bees don't like them at all. I watch the bees try and chase them off but they keep coming back. I've even put several essential oils all over the hive to keep them away. But of course they don't seem to care.
    Has anyone had this problem? How did you get rid of them?

    I have them on the ground but so far not in my hives. Sometimes I give them the boot sole test.

    You did not build your hives out of Box Elder did you?
