I have seen a couple wax moths and beetles. The hive seems strong to me. It was a 5 frame nuc when I got it mid april. They have 2 full deeps and are working on a super.

I think you have too much open space and need to reduce the number of boxes. Assuming you have 10 frame boxes, I can't see how a nuc can go from 5 frames to 30 frames in 6 weeks.

The 2 deeps are completely full. About half of it is brood in all stages and the other half is syrup or capped honey. I fed them until last week when I added the super. If I take the super they would have no space to work...

I looked up wax moth feces and it doesnt look the same. These almost look like little feet/wings.

Posting a reply to my own question just in case someone runs across the same thing. It is bahia seed pods from grass. I got some help in a local Facebook group.
