Wax Moth larvae can be cultured to provide bait for anglers. Some swear by them.

Cultured wax moth larvae can also be fried in hot oil and eaten by people.

My pick for the most interesting use of wax moth larvae: they can be used to bait nematodes, that can serve as biological control agents, out of the soil.

Since you live near lake Erie, I figured you might welcome the opportunity to turn a pest problem into an excuse for outdoor recreational activities.

Who knows, you might also find wax moth larvae fried in oil to be delectable.

Finally, who wouldn't find using wax moth larvae to bait nematodes for biological control relaxing?

;)
