Hi there. Yes we have had small hive beetles in Indiana in Laporte County. Which is right by the Indiana Michigan State Line and there was some in another area once. I know that they used guardstar drench for the ground around the hives. Here are some links to some information on SHB. http://www.ento.vt.edu/~fell/apiculture/hivebeetle/
