I split a hive about a month ago and it seemed to be doing fine. A few days ago I noticed small, white larvae in some of my frames. Since there were only a few I waited till today (about a week) to treat, and the hive was gone with a few dead bees in the bottom. Lots of larvae now. I'm thinking small hive beetles hit me hard in a weeks time.
My questions are:
1) Some of the wood on the frames looked as if it was chewed. Is this hive beetle or wax moth?
2) Should/Can I reuse this equipment? Frames, Deep, etc?
3) If this sound like wax moth, how do you guys treat for this?
Thanks for any input...
