This beetle trap / dry feeder was designed by Nathan Carter , If you have to put your hive in the shade this trap works great simply put on top of hive like a hive top feeder and install a piece of check mite strip (or other bait) under the tray allowing a space around the tray for the beetles to inter in from both sides .
Dry Feeder : simply pour cane sugar in the large area and the bees will come up through the hole and eat the sugar. Nathan Carter had his hives in total shade for years and this is how he feed his bees and trapped hive beetles .
