Wax Moths in a Beehive

As the season changes so do the pests that beekeepers have to do battle with.

Here is an example of wax moths. The moths lay eggs in the comb. When the eggs hatch, the wax worm will eat through the beeswax. They will leave a mess. The also will leave a spider web looking web in there.

These frames with comb need to be treated if the comb is to be saved for use later on.
