Shb and sugar feeder

1121 3
Have never had any real issues with shb but we packaged a new hive this year and went to our outyard to check on hives and seemed there was a lot of shb in around feeder, has anyone noticed this before. We stuck some cardboard on and removed the feeder.....hopefully that will get them.....

I notice them under my plastic boardsman feeders.I've only a couple plastic feeders the rest of my feeders I build myself.The boardsman feeders I build can only be entered from inside the hive by anything,bees ,ant, beetles and so on.I don't find them under these feeders only the plastic not sure why.They give the same shade as the plastic, which hive beetles like shade.My guess is my feeders are only accessible from inside the hive.Are you using EOs?
