Despite being sub tropical my hives are located in a spot that gets light frosts in the winter which I think assists with their control but they really get going in the summer.  They are also doing well in my worm farms.


Good luck with your SHB control.

I wonder if the snows and below freezing weather we've had here in the south this year will have any effect on out SHB populations this coming year? I sure hope so...


Freezing weather will not kill all  beetles in Norhern Vermont.

             BEE HAPPY Jim 134 :)

Here in Florida they are less active in cold weather but as soon as it warms up they are right back at it. I keep my traps in year around.

I could send you some, then you could be the first to have them in the north valley.   :-D

Just saw this and I find this very funny. Heck why not!! I'll be ahead of the game when they actually get to everyone else.
 :-D :-D
