They are full of bees and hive beetles. I lifted up the baggie feeder to replace it in each hive and at least 50 beetles were under the baggie. Last year I saw no beetles in the hive at the beginning of the season. Beetles appeared around late June. I hope this doesn't mean I am now going to have year round SHBs.

Do you do anything to try to control them? I really don't
look forward to finding nasty masses of beetle maggots in a hive.
