Beetle Jail frame trap for medium depth 6 5/8″ supers with drone foundation. It replaces a frame in the hive. It is the same size as a medium (Illinois) frame. It is to be placed in an Illinois super that is also a brood chamber. We recommend that it is placed on the outside of the brood frames in the brood body. The Beetle Jail frame traps, traps and kills small hive beetles in a beehive. There is a slot in the top of the frame for small hive beetles to enter. There are patented grooves inside the trap that prevent the beetles from escaping. There is an oil reservoir in the trap that the beetles fall in and drown. The reservoir may be removed, cleaned and used again. This trap also has drone foundation space, below the beetle trap reservoir. Drone foundation may be added or left for the bees to make their own foundation. Varroa mites prefer drone brood to reproduce in. After the drone brood is capped it should be removed and checked for Varrao mites, if excessive mites are found the frame (without the oil reservoir) should be placed in a freezer for a couple days to kill the varrroa. Then the frame can be replaced in the hive, the bees will clean it out, and the process can be repeated. Made in USA.
