Pest Management

Here are some of the ways our local beekeepers use natural methods for pest management. Check our product list for other products.

Varroa Easy Check
Varroa Easy Check
The Varroa Easy Check is a tool beekeepers have for reliable Varroa monitoring. The inner cartridge holds the bees and allows the mites to fall through to the outer section to easily count the mite load.
Beetle Blaster and Beetle Trap Oil
Beetle Blaster and Beetle Trap Oil
A natural way to control small hive beetles. Simply fill the trap about halfway with food approved oil like the Beetle Trap Oil we sell and place between the frames. Once it’s full, simply throw the trap away. The Beetle Trap Oil is a special blend that will attract beetles better than plain oil. A pint will fill 23 traps.
Para-Moth
Para-Moth
100% Para-dichiorobenzene, active ingredient. This product aids in keeping Wax Moths and their larvae under control in stored supers.
Deep Drone Comb
Deep Drone Comb
The easily recognizable green drone comb frame is a good way to naturally help manage mite populations.
