Beetle Jail Instructions
A variety of nonpoisonous oils or powders may be used in traps to kill small hive beetles including vegetable oil, mineral oil or food grade diatomaceous earth. Fill the two larger sections of the traps about 1/3 full of oil or diatomaceous earth. Various fruits, pollen, or beetles may be used for bait in the bait compartment. Close the bait compartment lid before closing the main lid. The traps will hang on the top of a frame in the hive. The frame may be removed from the hive for inspection without removing the trap. If the trap is removed, it will sit on its flat bottom without spilling.
