    Default Do Porch lights attract Wax Moths

    Being moths would shutting of my shed light near to where my hive is reduce the wax moths from entering my Hive.
    I like the light on at night it looks nice and keeps away predators from my chickens but I have a small Wax Moth issue with my hive.

    So Im wondering if the light encourages and attracts wax moths.

    Thanks BTB

    should not have a real wax moth problem now. i dont think the light would make much of a difference. would be better to keep your hive strong in the box there in and dont give them to many frames they can not cover
