Beetle Blaster - 1-Pack
Small Hive Beetle (SHB) Trap
You typically put 2 traps per brood box, so a total of 4 for 2 brood boxes
Compare with the big catalog companies that sell at $3.95
Most instructions will tell you to add vegetable oil to kill the beetles that fall into the trap. The problem is, you will periodically tilt a box which causes the oil to spill out all over the comb, ruining it. I HIGHLY RECOMMEND that you consider Food Grade Diatomaceous Earth. Fill the trap about 1/4 inch. When the bugs fall into the trap, this fine powder, which microscopically is very sharp crystals, will get in the joints of the beetles and kill them.
