Hello fellow beekeepers
we have a new product that we have added to our product range namely the Beetlejail, this is a U.S. designed trap that effectively catches SHB and they in turn act as bait and a great place to ‘hang out’ for other SHB to climb into and then get caught.
I typically add a small amount of vegetable oil in the trap that then drowns the captured beetles, anyway let me know if you need any as happy to post out where necessary.
This video posted by the inventor/designer shows their ease of use and effectiveness.
I like the added benefit that they are refillable and manufactured from safe food grade plastic are reusable and are easily cleaned and refilled to extend their use past single use which is common in many SHB trap designs.
Traps are available for $6.00 each or $10.00 for a pair.
