The smal hive beetle is a major pest of honeybee hives. This report describes the commercialisation of the APITHOR™ small hive beetle harbourage and the results of bee safety, honey residue and field efficacy trials conducted to support full product registration of the device by the Australian Pesticides and Veterinary Medicines Authority (APVMA).

The small hive beetle harbourage is now patented in Australia, New Zealand and the United States of America.

The report is written for beekeepers and advisors to the honeybee industry.
