Bees will chase the small hive beetle to a precise size opening that allows the beetles to enter while excluding the bees. Insecticide impregnated cardboard in harbourage is set back from the openings to ensure bees cannot make any contact at all. Once the beetles have been chased inside by the bees the awaiting insecticide will kill the hive beetle.
It is compatible with silicone adhesives if you wish to secure it to the base. Dispose of used Harbourages by wrapping in paper, placing in a plastic bag and placing in a garbage bin.
Can be used for up to 3 months in the hive.
