I have recently purchased some beetle barns from Rossman and was wondering what you guys were using in them. I saw a video where there seemed to be a lot of beetles in them, but I was unable to determine what chemical/posion was being used in them. What is the best? Please advise.

I know I'm resurrecting an old thread but so far I'm having way more luck with the slim CD case traps than with the beetle barns. Same bait, but I had plenty of dead beetles in the CD cases, so far zero in the barns. And I see beetles running around. Also, not sure why people insist on black CD cases since the hive is dark. With see-through cases, you can instantly see how the trap is performing and even smush the beetles if they somehow get under the case by just pressing on the whole thing.

Not sure why my barns aren't catching anything, but I'll keep trying them for awhile.
