8 or 10 Frame Beetle Baffle

The Beetle Baffle™ forms a full perimeter, downward facing ledge that permits normal bee traffic but makes it very difficult for beetles to climb over, depriving them of access to the combs. Bees quickly adapt their herding behavior to drive beetles downward and out of the hive as opposed to attempting to imprison them at the top of the hive. Trapping them at the entrance keeps them from entering the hive and damaging comb. The wood spacer is required for installation, sold separately or make your own. (Bottom board not included)


Spacers sold separately $4.75

Beetle Towels

An effective and economical way to trap small hive beetles. Cut each towel into three pieces, placing one to two sheets in each hive where beetles congregate. Your bees will chew up the towels, creating a fuzzy trap. Beetles are unable to escape once they make contact with the towel.



DE Earth

Provides organic beetle control. Spread in front of hive or in tray to create a microscopically sharp barrier to keep pests away.




GardStar® is a ground drench (DO NOT USE INSIDE THE HIVE) used to control small hive beetle larvae which pupate in the ground around the hive openings. It is also effective against adult hive beetles emerging. Each 4 oz. (113.4g) bottle makes 23 gallons (86.94 l) and 1 gallon (3.78 l) will treat approximately 6 hives. Sprinkle 18 - 24" (45.7 cm x 61 cm) out in front of hive entrances. Treatments last 2 - 4 months, depending on rainfall. If treating in an area where hives are already present, use a watering can to avoid any over-spray from contaminating the hives. GardStar® quart makes 189 gallons (714.42 l). 1 quart (946.24 ml) will treat 1134 hives.

Mite Away Quick Strips

The Quick Strips have a treatment period of just 7 days. Daytime temperatures must be between

50° F - 84° F (10° C- 29° C). Strips are laid across the tops of the brood frames and they can be used during a honey flow if necessary. A spacer rim is no longer needed for these strips, but you still need to wear the recommended safety equipment for acid. Store below 77° F (25° C) away from direct sunlight.



Check Mite +

Used for varroa mite control in conjunction with plastic corrugated squares sold in stores.



Oxalic Acid

Green Drone Frame

Our one piece plastic frame and foundation features a larger cell pattern encouraging the bees to build drone comb. As part of your Integrated Pest Management program for varroa mites, insert one drone frame into each hive. When the bees have capped the cells, place the frame in a plastic bag in the freezer overnight. Remove the frame from the freezer and let it warm to room temperature. Drag your capping scratcher across the cells, breaking them open, then place the frame back in the hive for the worker bees to clean out the dead drones and mites. Repeat the cycle as the bees refill and cap the cells.
