Less area to guard, it will help with robbing anyway. I lost 1 hive in the fall to other hives robbing. Back to the SHB's, they are attracted to a weak hive, supposedly to cooking shortening,and who knows what all. What is the chux style wipes, haven't heard of that. I use the traps with some success. Oh, I wouldn't shake the larvae out on the ground. When they hatch out the crawl out of hive and go to ground and come out in a few weeks to a few months, or thats what I think. Good luck to you and your bees.
