Beards and roaches
« Reply #20 on: May 28, 2006, 12:32:51 AM »
I may have to take back my advice about the slatted rack. While it does seem to work well for ventilation it also seems to give the hive beetles a place to hide. I took a hive down today all the way to the rack and there were a lot of hive beetles all in the grooves of the slatted rack. I have removed the rack and will check next week to see if that helped.

Does anyones else have this kind of problem with slatted racks?
Beekeeping and hunting.... Is there anything else?

Will now, that's a problem.  Up here in the Pacific Northwest I've never seen a Hive beetle.  So That's a problem I wouldn't have been able to foresee.  But for those who live in areas without SHB I still suggest using slatted racks.
