    I found some larvae when I was extracting. Also I've seen a lot of moths. I also had some small shook swarms I was starting that absconded and the combs were full of larvae. I don't know if they left because of the wax moth larvae or the larvae just took off after they left, but judging by the size of the larvae and time frame, I think they left because of the larvae.
