The Better Beetle Blaster is a small hive beetle trap, which was developed by Laurence Cutts. Laurence is a lifetime beekeeper, a retired Florida state apiary inspector, and a member of the Florida Agricultural Hall of Fame since 2012. Laurence developed this trap to control this pesky beetle, also known as Aethina tumida, which has become quite a nuisance to beekeepers far and wide.
The Small hive beetle, originally from the sub-Saharan regions of Africa, was first confirmed in an apiary in Florida, in 1998. Since then, this pest has spread throughout the United States, appeared in Australia, and now Aethina tumida have begun to surface in parts of Europe.

The Better Beetle Blaster small hive beetle trap is completely manufactured in America, but is now being used by beekeepers world-wide to combat the small hive beetle.
