Formic Acid

I have a hive of feral bees that I caught in a swarm trap out the mountains around my job site. I had checked in on them after the Formic acid treatment. I saw no mites but I did notice several hive beetles dead. I am wondering if it was the Formic acid that killed them or if it was possible the bees did.

The FA did it. All bees can do is herd them around.
That's what I was thinking as well, just never had noticed the Formic acid doing a job on hive beetles before.
