I am in the process of building sometraps for sHB's. Are there any common household chemicals/liquids/substances that can be used. Thing is alot of the approved chemicals are not available here (at least to my knowledge).

i have been reading not finished as yet though. The only thing i see so far may be the apple cider vinegar. Is there a reason for this specific type though

I have heard of a chemical called maverick mixed with vegtable oil  poured on the end of the frames does the trick.

I've never seen or heard of maverick out here. You see a lot the the chemicals used in other countries are not available here eg. oxalic acid, terramycin etc.(not sure of spellings). I know we hav the checkmite strips but if i use it now i run the risk of contaminating my honey and i am not sure if its worth it for the few beetles i've seen, so i am trying other methods first.

i think checkmite was what they said is used

Can you give more information on this chemical maverick?  I found the Maverick Chemical Company on the net but not a chemical called maverick.  I was looking for a MSDS sheet so my  chemical eng wife could look over it Smiley

Apple Cider Vinegar attracts SHB and entices them to commit suicide by drowning in it.

Apple Cider Vinegar is available where I live at one supermarket - it is a "luxury" food item here, mucho expensive. Therefore, some experimenting might be in order. Perhaps the Banana Peel Concoction used as a Wax Moth Attractant works on SHB too, if suitably presented INSIDE the hive.

Recipe here > http://www.beeworks.com/informationcentre/wax_moth.html

Sean. Consider Small Cell. Here in Africa, where the "beast" is coming from, beeks do not seem to have much trouble with them at all - I have come accross only one beek who mentioned SHB and that sounded like management mistakes/weak hives.

Hi empilol. Have been reading up on the small cell but it seems only to refer to varroa control.
I have seen a design for a trap that is nailed on to the edge of the landing board of the hive to catch the larva when it's crawling out to pupate. I will be using the apple cider vinegar in it.
