    Wax Moth?????

    I have a weak hive. During the inspection I came across this frame. Looks like wax moth but not sure. If it is can I save the frame by freezing it since it is not a brood frame? :s

    I read that bees should not be moved less than 3 feet or they should be moved more than 3 miles. Anyone know why?
