The AJ beetle eater is an Australian-made product. This trap is a favourite with experienced beekeepers, because it can be washed out and re-used. Simply fill the trap with cheap cooking oil or diatomaceous earth, and place it between two frames in the top box. The bees force the beetle up and into the trap, where they will drown in the oil or become dehydrated by the diatomaceous earth.

Easier to fill and a lot more solid than the cheap and nasty ones on this site. Another pro, is if you are using a top mat, the beetles can still get in from the sides/the mat doesn’t seal the trap closed. The traps are a little fiddly to snap together, but not that bad.

These are easy to clean and re-use. They fit well in the plastic frames I have.
