    Yeah, it's kinda nasty. I have had lots of probs with wax moth. I just do my best to clean it up, getting rid of the silk I think is the hardest thing for the bees to do.

    I clean off all the silk and cocoons, and spray the combs with a hose, and let them dry.

    Next season I drop a swarm on them and they just go to town.
