Well said Capt44.  Easy but still strong.

Update.
I took a bottle of cooking oil to that hive this morning. Had the bottle of oil open and ready when I pulled the tray out. There were close to one hundred SHBs in that tray again. It took a while to knock all of the beetles off the wood door into the oil.
Hopefully I will eliminate the rest of the beetles in the area whit that oil tray.

Diatomaceous Earth on the ground around the hives and in the trays will help alot. I mix some with hydrated lime in the trays under the sbb.
This only kills the larvae that are leaving your hive to pupate. I kill thousands of beetles and all of the larvae when I put oil in the tray.
My first 2 years I killed thousands of beetles in every hive every month and the still kept coming in. They smell your hives from miles away and home in on them. You really need to kill them in the hive.

Deknow,
For some reason your link just shows a bunch of strange pictures, flowers, a strange house and an aerial circular swing.
I would like to see you bike if you can correct it.

Here are the recommended weights for labels from an old bee supply mag.

1pt...... 22oz
1qt...... 44oz

That makes each fluid oz of honey by volume equal 1.375 oz by weight (mass). I hope I stated that correctly  grin  On the other side of the coin a 1 pound honey jar made for honey will hold 1 pound of honey by weight (mass)..... but will not hold 16 fluid oz volume.

By most State laws a label requires the weight in oz/g example a pint mason jar would be labeled 22oz/623g

I'm getting $10 a pint (1 1/2 lbs) and $18 a quart (3lbs).

Isnt a Pint 16 oz? Isnt a pound 12 oz? Sounds like a pound and a third. G huh

12 oz in a pound??? I definitely better stay off the scales  grin

Honey is sold by weight not volume .a pint weighs about a pound and half. You will always have more wight than volume check out the one pound container at the store it only holds about 9 ounces volume .
