SHB & Chook Yards

Well, as recent as last night & today I discovered that it appears that SHB larvae only leave the hive during the night. For anyone keeping hives in a chook yard with a view that the chooks will eat the larvae as they exit the hive, think again. If the larvae bury in the soil where the chooks are likely to scratch during the day, they’ll probably get eaten. However there’s no guarantee that the larvae will automatically get scratched out & eaten.
