Beetle can get in but bees can’t.
To help control beetles in your hive, place a bait of choice in the middle of the beetle barn and close the top. Place the beetle barn on the top of frames or on the bottom board. Honeybees tend to harass hive beetles and the beetles seek refuge in small dark areas.
One common bait used is Boric acid but check to see if it's legal to use this in your state.
Mix 1/4 cup soy flour, 2 tablespoons of boric acid, and 3 tablespoons of peanut oil and 1/8 of a cup of water. mix into dough consistency and put just a little of this bait inside the trap.
