OK  my ferrel bee's have been in my hive for around 13 day's now. On the fourth day I went back just to check on them. When I lifted the outter cover I saw around 12 or so SHB's I mashed all of them Cool . Last night I moved them to their new home. This mourning I did a inspection and saw some SHB's on the cloth that I tied some of the brood comb from the tree where they were located. My question is this. Which is going to be the best trap. The hood trap or the west beetle trap. I was thinking of filling the west beetle trap with DE instead of oil. Would the west trap also combat the varrola mite's?  smiley

Our beeks here use the west beetle trap and use lime in the bottom.

why not try both, you may like one better than the other or you just might like to use both at the same time....
