Beetlatra traps give you an economical way of beetle-proofing the base of your hive. The rails can be attached to the underside of a bottom board with holes drilled in it. You can then fill the trap with oil or diatomaceous earth and slide it in and out to inspect it for beetles and/or empty it.
Made from injection-moulded UV-stable plastic

Beetle TrapBy: Janelle Jones on 11 June 2019I find this an a really good product. Its one way I can gauge whats going on in winter. ie brood cappings, number of beetle.I would suggest not over tightening the screws. If you do the runners will eventually crack.
