SHB Was new NUCs
« on: July 15, 2008, 12:42:03 PM »
Last Sat I pick up a double nuc that was part of the Ohio Queen Program. From one of the people that help put it on.  Sun day When I finely opened it up I saw what I think was two of them.::eek:mad: Very few bees on the one side. Yesterday I re opend it up looking for beetles The one side no bees no beetles.  The other side bees but didn't any see larvae. No Beatles. I admitted that I have a hard time seeing larvae. so we will see. Did order traps should bee here in a day or so.

I bought a nuc about a month ago in South Jersey.  When transferring the frames to a new super I saw two SHBs.  I guess they're everywhere now.  The bees seem to keep them under control.  I also have a trap, but haven't used it yet.
