A couple of years ago I had the worst hive beetle problem I’ve encountered. Beetle traps and other methods were not working very well. One of my fellow beekeepers, Charlie Headington recommended that I try nematodes for control. He gave me the name and website address of the place he used. I had been reading about nematodes but hadn’t met anyone before Charlie who had used them. I ordered enough for all of my hives and was amazed by the effectiveness. Since then, I install nematodes when I am setting up new hives and hive beetles are not something that I have to deal with anymore. This is my 3rd year working with this company and they are great to work with. The website has great videos about how to install.
