Re: Do I need to worry about moving a swarm with a lot of hive beetles into my apiary
The SHB should not be a problem for your apiary. The bees are dealing with the beetles already and have them under control. You may want to use one of a number of SHB traps after moving the hive. Beetle Barns, Beetle Blasters, and Swiffer style dusting cloths all provide decent control. Kamon reccommends the Dine a Max towel by Brawny, but you have to buy a case, around $60. Checkmite can also be used if you wanted to go chemical.
Thankfully, the bees are smarter than I am. They are doing well, in spite of my efforts to help them.
