6 pack of small hive beetle traps, enough for trapping beetles in up to 3 beehives quickly and easily by using the bee's natural tendencies to corral beetles into small places. Our beetle traps are the industry standard and an essential part of any beekeeper's beekeeping supplies.
WORKS NATURALLY WITH THE BEES: Beetles are naturally forced and corralled into the traps as the beetles run away from the honey bees. As the beetles hide in the traps, they get caught in the oil and can't come out.
EASY TO USE AND INSTALL: No tools are required to install, for best results place 2 traps in between the 2 outside frames on both sides of the top box. Beetles are naturally corralled into the corners of the top box, exactly where the traps work best.
DESIGNED TO KEEP BEES SAFE: These Cutts beetle traps have thin slots for beetles to enter but are too small for bees to enter. Simply fill the traps halfway with oil and as beetles enter the oil compartment they die quickly. When full, simply toss throw away the trap and replace it.
WORKS GREAT IN SPRING AND SUMMER: Hive beetle populations increase in the summer, but the best time to use our beetle traps in your beehive is the spring before beetle populations increase. During the summer when beetle populations increase, you can place multiple traps in each box.
