    Default anyone use MAQS for wax moths?

    I know this is an expensive proposition, but it seems that using a MAQS on a stack of empty boxes with drawn comb might be effective against wax moth. I just read elsewhere on Beesource an article about the various treatments to deter wax moth and formic acid fumes was one of them. I want to avoid using paradichlorobenzene, and have a bunch of drawn comb from brood nest I'd like to save till later in the season. Storing it outside doesn't seem too appealing to me.

    Why not use Bt aizawai for wax moth control? Bt qualifies as an organic control for targeted pests.

    Here is a thread with info, and offering this Bt aizawai for sale:
