Take a look at this article about the Beetle Baffle in the July issue of Innovate Mississippi's Pointe Innovation Magazine.

Read this testimonial from a happy friend:


"I am a beekeeper.

I am also at my wit's end with the Small Hive Beetle (SHB). I have tried almost everything to get rid of them with varying success. I have trapped them in the hive, under the hive, going into the hive, in little boxes inside the hive, on top of the frames, under the frames and in the frames. I have mashed them with the hive tool, thumbs, fingers, rocks and hammers. I have not hired a voodoo priest yet, only because I don’t know where to find one.


After cleaning out my third hive this month from the ravages of the SHB I found another “solution” and ordered two of your Beetle Baffles’. I put them on two hives about 15 miles from my home. In two days I checked the hives and saw a marked decrease in the beetles present in the hive.


I have a trap on the bottom of these hives to catch the beetles, but was still getting a lot of beetles in a very strong hive. I emptied the catch tray on the day I installed the baffle. I was amazed when I found a tray overflowing with beetles that were caught exiting the hive. This, along with the memory of the destroyed hives this month has lead me to place an order for 20 more Beetle Baffles for two of my yards.


If I get the same results that I have seen so far I expect to be Beetle free for the winter."
