(3 customer reviews)

R20.00 Including Vat

  • Easy installation.
  • Safe for larvae, queen, workers, and drones.
  • Can be used any time small hive beetles are present.
  • Will also trap earwigs and other small insect pests inside hive.
  • Use after doing splits to keep the hive strong. No poisons, no pesticides, safe for honey supers.
  • Can be baited with a combination of a little honey and pollen. Apple cider vinegar can also be used as a bait material in the center section.
  • Easy installation, hang over top bar of frame. Install between the first two and the last two frames in the brood chamber.
  • Can be used with mineral oil, vegetable oil, hydrated lime, or dry capture. Mineral Oil or vegetable oil can go rancid, especially after capturing a few beetles. The odor of the dead beetles repels other beetles from the trap. Hydrated lime (calcium hydroxide, slaked lime) does not create an odor from dead beetles. Lime works by dehydrating the body of the beetle.
