HIVE BEETLE EXPLOSION !!

 

  I keep 4 hives in the back yard to play with and sometimes they are   
  neglected. I had let the soapy water evaporate. Apparently the trays had
  been dry for over 2 weeks. There were thousands of beetles. My area in
  southeast Arkansas is overloaded with hive beetles. Even if I kill every one
  of them in the hive, hundreds more fly in about sundown.  

 

   Further down this page there is a video on sugar dusting for hive beetles.
  The point is to make the bees mad so they will chase bettles into the tray
  with oil or soapy water. Sugar dusting takes a little time and I have
  discovered that 'whupping' the hive with a stick accomplishes the same
  objective.

  I cleaned the trays and refilled them with soapy water. I beat each hive with
  a sizable stick until the bees were flying out the entrance. This was about
  5:30 PM Friday, August 6, 2016. I took the pictures below about 10:00 AM
  Saturday, August 7, 2016. All I did was pull the trays out and take the
  pictures.  I don't believe any other trap will kill so many beetles so quickly!

Would you believe it - I cleaned the tray and killed
nearly that many more beetles!!
