I think my days of using the plastic frame/foundation combos are over. I have figured out that the grooves that are on the sides of the end bars, make perfect hiding spots for those cussed SHB's. Each time, I pull one, I poke my knife down in all the grooves, to spear the little devils. Anyone else ever noticed this?

It makes a good beetle trap.   As long as they are in there and stay put, then you can kill them quick and easy.  Think about how fast the run off.   It they are in the groove, kill them.
