well I officially have seen my first one. I found him yesterday when I opened up one of my newer hives for a quick check. he was dispatched with one flick of a hive tool. Hopefully he will be the last but somehow I doubt it.

I not only doubt it but would bet on it! Sorry, they're everywhere.

I like the AJ beetle traps. You need to be proactive with these things for they will crash a hive very quickly.
