Small Hive Beetle is a deadly pest for european honey bees.

It is actively sought out by the target pest without the need to include attractants or baits.
You can be confident that APITHOR has been fully evaluated for its safety to bee hives – you simply can’t go wrong with this product!
Directions for use
With a hive tool, paint scraper or similar implement remove wax and debris from a sufficient area of the
bottom board to accommodate the harbourage.
Place harbourage, flat surface down, on the bottom board with the slot ends aligned away from the hive entrance.
The harbourage must sit flat on the bottom board such that beetles cannot shelter underneath.
In hives with corrugated or distorted bottom boards apply a thin bead of silicone sealant to the outer edge of the
underside of the harbourage and press down firmly onto the bottom board.
Unless stuck to the bottom board a thin wire may be attached to the harbourage to facilitate later removal from the hive via the hive
entrance thus removing the need to open the hive.
Monitor harbourages for damage or for ‘waxing up’ of the slot entrances.
Replace if damaged or when effectiveness declines.
Replace trap with a new one after 3 months. (this may be done earlier if there is a huge outbreak of beetle.)
DO NOT use in hives with perforated bottom boards.
DO NOT use in hives subject to water inundation.
DO NOT open or remove the insert from the harbourage device
