    Default what is this stuff on SBB?

    Hello, was wondering if this is something common? I found these fluffy "strings" on the monitor board of the SBB; they are 1/8"-1/4" thick and about 1" long. I only saw them in the rear half of the board scattered over the entire width, 5-10 total.

    Lots like normal hive debris..small bits of wax, pollen, etc that fall down. Nothing of concern that I see.

    I also see plenty of wax moth larva "trails" in the hive trash on screened bottom boards. Nothing to be concerned with, but I do recommend keeping the boards clean.

    Thanks for the comments. So, it does have something to do with wax moth.
