Ack! Wax Moths!
I'm afraid I may have wax moths. I pulled out the tray under the SBB on bith hives and found several larvae. I plan on inspecting the hives ASAP, but I need to know what to do with whatever damage I find. Both hives are 2 deeps and one shallow now.
I assume I have to cut out the damaged comb, but at this time of year, they will not rebuild the comb. I assume having big holes cut out of the comb is not a good strategy heading into winter. Can anyone offer advice on what to do?
I may have more drawn comb, but I'm afraid wax moths may have gotten into it, too. To make matters worse, I do not have a freezer big enough to put frames in.
