    Default wax moths

    Just opened up one of my hives and found that it was infected with wax moths. Quite a surprise since it is a pretty strong hive. (I thought a strong hive would keep them out).
    I've seen posts where certan is recommended to get rid of the moths. What is the best way to clean up the hive? I've got honey, pollen, brood and lots of bees on the infected frames.

    Spray some Bt (Certan) on the infested combs.

    Or just order the powder form from Sundance. It's far cheaper and works great.
