    you have wax moths must have been a weak hive, pull the frames and put them in a heafty trash bag and place them in the freezer for a few days.

    Ditto. Next spring put them on a strong hive and they will quickly repair the damage. It can be much worse and still repaired. But don't wait on doing it.

    The bees will try to repair them but they usally don't do a good job.

    This has been a tough year with wax moths for me. The bee's do a reasonable clean up job but as mentioned, they sometimes leave a little to be desired in the repair category!
