I am having a hard time finding a good link but I heard a podcast at BKCorner.com (Episode 37 at 24:37 – 37:47 | Segment 2: Small Hive Beetle and Varroa, This is Really Cool) where they took ground up adult hive beetles and mixed it with soil. The larva would not go into the soil to pupate. They would rather die than go into the soil with ground up adult SHB. This was discussed at the ABF Conference in 2013 (I think that is the right year... it was in Hershey Pennsylvanian if that helps narrow it down) The part of the discussion about the SMB was called "Line in the Pan" as a play on line in the sand and I am not sure who was presenting it. EDIT: Dr. Peter Till from the USDA lab in Gainesville FL (not sure of spelling) was the presenter.
Hope you can find a good link.... The weird thing about the link is I can play it on my IPhone but not on my computer. My computer tells me the file is corrupt but my phone opens and plays it fine.
Here is the link (I think it is the correct episode) just fast forward to the 24 min mark... I am going to listen again and may update this if I can get better info out of it. http://www.bkcorner.org/audio/BKCORNER_episode-037_02-19-2013.mp3
EDIT: This is the correct episode... go to the 31 min mark to hear the part on the SHB.
