Try going to FATBEEMAN on the net or on Youtube and see how he makes his hive beetle traps. They are easy,cheap and effective. I have used them this year and hive beetles have not been a problem for me here in Georgia. I hope this helps you with your beetles. Robert:thumbsup:

He is using the material from the election signs you see on the side of the road and in peoples yards when folk run for offices. I would say you could probably get some for free or very cheap from the printing places that print the signs if they have damaged stock or misprinted signs. If all else fails...a late night run and grab could net you as many as you want off the side of the roads ;)

If they are propolising them shut then just put plain pieces of corroplast in there and let the bees propolise the beetles in. Skip the about the poison.

If you want to change them out every few days just stick a long wire through them and stick them in through the front entrance. Then you can pull them out by the wire and replace them without opening the hive at all. You can put two or three on the same wire.
