Beetle entrance trap

Great product.

Dan Hershey
Entrance reducers

Tried one on a late swarm that didn't need extra stress. Have not seen a beetle in the hive and bees handle the entrance just fine after some initial confusion. Plan on setting all hives with a least one by next summer.

Away with ye damded beetles! harrr

Its talk like a pirate, hive beetles are denied access to hive. So nice and easy to install. Try the upper entry as well.

Andre Boilard
Simple yet effective

Ordered these to install shb Guardian and swap out reducers rather than trying to remove the guard when not needed
