Small Hive Beetle

As you are aware, Small Hive Beetle has been discovered in Italy last year and the experts say it is only a matter of time before it reaches us - most probably bought in by beekeepers, rather than fruit, flowers or plants - vigilance and awareness is essential so to assist you attached is a Small Hive Beetle (SHB) flyer, which INIB & UBKA have jointly had printed for distribution to as many beekeepers as possible.
