For those of you who are more able woodworkers, we have put together a kit which includes everything you need to build a Freeman style small hive beetle trap except the wood.
This is a kit which includes the following:
1. #6 Wire Mesh** with a 3.2mm aperture and pre-cut to fit your size hive trap
2. Assembled aluminum pan made to fit your hive. With folded corners, sealed.
All you need to do is build the wooden bottom board to hold it. A Howto: video on this process is here
** This screen may be substituted with another mesh depending on inventory, however, any mesh substituted will have an aperture of between 3.00mm and 3.2mm which is the size required to allow beetles through but not bees**
