Abstract: The small hive beetle, Aethina tumida (Murray), is a facultative parasite of honeybees, Apis mellifera L. It was introduced to the United States from Sub-Saharan Africa circa 1996-98, and has since spread to 32 states, Canada, and Australia. Due to its recent introduction to non-native habitats, many aspects of the beetle�s biology and ecology remain unknown. In this thesis, published research on the SHB was reviewed and used to explore potential soil treatments for the control of larval stages. The effect of Gardstar� was compared to the effects of various household treatments (Dawn �Soap, Safer� Brand Soap, Greenlight� Organic Oil) on SHB larvae mortality. Gardstar� proved to be the most effective treatment, showing 100% mortality in all concentrations tested. Dawn �Soap showed 100% mortality in concentrations between 2-40 % (v/v), while Safer� Brand Soap and Greenlight� Organic Oil showed no mortality at 40 % (v/v) concentrations.
