These beekeeping supplies will help keep beetles out of your hive with these clear plastic reusable beehive small hive beetle traps for hive beetles. Just fill the middle with vinegar and the sides with vegetable oil. The beetles are attracted to the vinegar and get trapped in the oil. The holes in the top are big enough to allow small hive beetles to enter, but cannot be accessed by honeybees.
- Designed to fit neatly between outer frames in a hive
- Easy to insert between frames in a hive to trap small hive beetles and thereby protect healthy honeybee colonies.
- Made of plastic and reuseable
Tips: Keeping bees healthy is essential in controlling small hive beetles. Weak colonies are much more vulnerable. Make sure traps are not completely filled to ensure that trapped small hive beetles cannot climb out. The traps can be partly filled with apple cider vinegar with a layer of oil floating on top. Apple cider vinegar is an attractive bait.
