I do not want to use dangerous chemicals in my hive to control them.

Are they causing problems?  Typically in a strong hive they don't.  If they are there are traps available and some people have been using Diatomaceous Earth under a SBB.  I have no actual experience with them in my hives, but I have seen them in pretty much all the hives I looked in  North Carolina when I was there.
