What I DO know is that in a normal year (which this does not look like it will be) I don't see any until mid summer and then they multiply quickly. I assume the migrate from somewhere south or there are just a few that make it through the winter and it takes until them for them to get the population back up.

In my observation, wax moths can fly at temps where the bees are still clustered. In other words they can fly at colder temperatures than the bees. I don't know exactly how cold but I've seen them flying at 40 F or so when the bees weren't.
