    I would look for evidence of silk and tunneling if it's wax moth. Don't look just where you saw the larvae, look at all the frames especially the older brood comb. How strong is the colony? A strong colony will take care of wax moths pretty well. Hive beetles are another concern altogether. Post a pic if you can take one.
