Strong bees that don't have alot of extra space to take care of. Check your hives, they may have already taken care of the larve. wax moth populations can quickly expled, however. If necessary, Reduce your hive to the essentials, leaving a few empty frames for additional brood and honey storage. IMPORTANT:Look for other diseases that may be weakening your hive. Also, Feed your bees if they have light stores and no honey flow.
Completely ignore them. Wax moths can't hurt a normal colony of bees. I find them in the SBB junk all the time... they feed on it. I actually breed wax moths- in "hives" (without bees) with old comb that I want cleaned off my plastic frames.
