The Beetle Buster Base Board has been in development for four years by Bruce Wallace and has been doing quite well in Australia and was recently released in the USA.

No this is a whole new bottom board that has had years of work put into it to stop the small hive beetles at the entrance before they get into the hive, and if they do make it in then the bees will chase them down the holes in the corrugate into diatomaceous earth or oil in the tray underneath. It has been proven to catch at least 80% of the beetles at the entrance.

Eh, another miracle cure snake oil product..I like to play devils advocate on any of these products..beetles just dont enter the hive from the front entrance, like all the products for beetle control they all do some none do all. they look like nice bottoms but very pricey, you claim it eliminates the hive beetle, do you have that as a guarantee in writing?
here is the quote from your website "After 4 years of development an innovative bottom board specifically designed to eliminate the Small Hive Beetle from your beehive has been created."
and what if it doesnt? you buy back the bottoms or pay for any beetles in the hive?

a lot of things do work, but not worth a huge pricetag.
