A very simple yet effective device for trapping small hive beetle (Aethina tumida).
This pest, if it reaches our shores and can survive our conditions could prove quite a challenge for beekeepers.
The trap is therefore for monitoring purposes. Simply place inside the hive on the floor to one side.
The beetles prefer the dark and hide in the flutes. Remove and check contents at every hive inspection.

If you are seriously concerned with what you find send to the National Bee Unit, Central Science Laboratory, Sand Hutton, York, YO41 1LZ for examination.
