Anyone using the Beetle Jail entrance trap and/or bottom board from the beetlejail folks?Link to Beetle Jail Home Page
The bottom board with trap looks like a nice design that allows mite counts with board, screened ventilation and a beetle trap. One of my hives has a nice screened bottom board that allows me to put in trays of oil and that system works great...however the two I tried to build myself are terrible.
I won't go into details but I'm a computer geek and am horrible when trying to build things in the physical world...some may consider the bottom board and entrance traps expensive but you'all have never seen me build things with wood, it's an insult to trees everywhere.
The entrance trap also seems pretty neat.
