I am new to the SHB saga as well, but am learning fast.
The hood trap is a plastic box that attatches to the bottom bar of a frame. It has three compartments, the center is filled with Apple Cider Vinegar, the two outside ones filled with mineral/vegetable oil. When trying to excape from the bees or attracted to the Vinegar the SHB fall into the oil and drowned.
The west SHB trap fills in the bottom board with a reservoir and a screen. Same idea, you fill the reservoir with oil, the beetles fall in and drowned. However, you must disassemble the whole hive to check, clean or refill.
I am currently experimenting with a Sonnny-Mel trap, very similar to a hood trap in operation, except constructed from a plastic sandwich box. It seems to work well, but I need to find a better place to put it. It is currently on my bottom board under the Slatted rack, so I have to take everything apart to get to it.
I am also trying the same idea made out of a CD case, so that it can be placed on top of the inner cover. I need to deploy version 2. My first attempt used the glue from a mouse trap. It worked on a few other insects, but the SHB that was in there was just running around. So, I would agree that glue, tape or sticky boards are useless against the SHB.
