Wax Moth Damage

photo by T. Ronning
This pic is of wax moth damage from a hive that died in late summer. The unattended hive was very attractive to predators. Wax moths moved in and did some major comb damage. Now with the cold temperatures the moths will not be as big as a problem. Freezing temperatures kills the moth in all stages of development.
