In my humble opinion...malathion is bad news all the ways around..I feel there are some great folks here who can tel you how to take care of SHB without using malathion...

Papabear,

I found this, a post by Linda...she has a fantastic blog...check it out!

I've now heard from both Mel and Sonny, the two inventors of this SHB trap.  They say I can use the lure immediately but best if it ages in the sun for a day tomorrow.  They put the trap on the top of the hive and enclose it in a shim made with a 1X2 board - I assume that is a box made with a one by two - the size of a super. 

Although I only have a hand saw, I'll bet I can saw through a 1x2 and nail it into a box to do this...can't be much different than nailing together the many supers I have now hammered together.  I tell you, if I keep on beekeeping, I'll get good at construction yet!

I posted the beginning of this process on my blog (making the lure)
http://beekeeperlinda.blogspot.com/2007/04/full-on-attack-against-small-hive.html

I'll keep on posting there, so if you are interested in fighting the SHB, keep watching and I'll let you know how it goes.

Do not put malathion anywhere near a hive. If even a little remains and gets in the honey it will be very bad. Malathion is oil based and does not just evaporate, it lingers for a long time. It will ruin your honey and your hive. There are other chemicals you can use if you want to, malathion isn't one of them.

Sincerely,

Important information here, Follow the label instructions for all chemicals.  Failure to use them acording to lable instructions is a violation of federal law and can be prosecuted.  Just ask the Addee family.  They got caught and are paying a fine.  A strong hive placed in full sun is a good way to keep their numbers down.  I actually see some propolized on the top of frames from time to time.  Good luck those bugs are a pain in the neck, I know first hand.

I've lost whole hives to Malathion when they would fog for mosquitoes during the daytime.  I would not let any anywhere NEAR my hive, let alone spray any part of the hive with it.

Wow, that sounds a lot like spraying the hive with sheep dip to kill mites.....

If it kills the beetles from contact, it will probably affect the bees.  I could understand that on the tray of screened bottom board (no I wouldn't use it, there are better ways) but not on a solid bottom board.

If you have a Screened bottom board you could put diatomatious earth on the tray for a safer alternative.

Sounds like some of the Big unscrupulous bee owners POISONING  Honey. (CCD)Huh
Good honest Beekeepers should let their voices be heard. Would you let your Grand kids eat honey
from a hive that you knew had been treated with (ILLEGAL CHEMICALS)??
