how to get rid of this nasty pest?
keeps peeking inside, disturbing bees and stuff. what's the best way to get rid of it? is there some kind of lure? like a big queen with lots of pheromones or something? is there a trap? are there any other ways to keep this pesky critter of the back of my bees?
i swear to god i see him like..30-50 times a day just walking up the backyard just to peek in front of hives. he's really annoying!

HELP PLEASE!

i have one of those too. :-)  just wandering across the field and watching the bees come and go.  sometimes popping the top just to see what's happening.......

More than that, they are unconcerned with the fortunes of their village, the safety of their streets, the fate of their church and its vestry. They think that such things have nothing to do with them, that they belong to a powerful stranger called “the government.” They enjoy these goods as tenants, without a sense of ownership, and never give a thought to how they might be improved.....

He just walks by mine. Always goes behind and sometime will peep around to see whats going on at the entrance. Unless he has something to check he doesn't open the hive no more than once in 7 to 10 days.

You find a willing member of the opposite sex and have them parade around in a provocative manner to distract this intruder. Perhaps the culprit will even follow the lure completely out of the bee yard.

a naked man in my bee yard isn't going to do much for me  :-).  not to mention the danger to certain parts that are protected and valued more than life itself on the naked man.  i'll run the idea by my husband......

Anyone that tells you they don't have this problem, watch them closely cause they will lie about other things too.

Get him/her an observation hive.  :-D

Been spending a lot of time in the back room watching a small hive deal with small hive beetle  :-x  But so far the bees are winning.  :)

And watching them create, cap, and tear down queen cells so often for no apparent reason.

love the observation hive idea. I try my best to stay away and for most part I do, but other times....

Scadsobees.  When they build and tear down queen cups, I think that they are practising to ensure that when the time comes and they need to build the ultimate house for the queen babies, they can do it perfectly.  The queen will be looked after like she is the most important body in the hive (of course, she is!!!!).  Have a wonderful day.  Great life, great health.  Cindi

I love the site that Michael Bush has.   I am going to get my husband one day to build me an observation hive.  I think that would be the most fun thing in the world to do.  He is so busy building stuff for me now, like the slatted bottomboards and some more screened bottomboards.  I am a lucky woman.  This man loves to build things for me.  C

how do you reduce an impact on each individual hive?  Easy- add more hives.  The pest has to spend less time per hive in order to get to them all, effectively reducing pesky impact. :)
