Beekeepers across Europe face the threat of a new pest, the Small Hive Beetle, but a low-cost device to trap the pest is already available from Vita.
There are some pests that honeybees cannot sting, so they produce a secret weapon from their armoury: the honeybee bite stuns the pest so that it can be ejected from the hive.
