In my west hive beetle trap on my week hive, I found two worms that were in a a loose dark cocoon.  The worms came out as soon as I disturbed them.  The were about 3/8 - 1/2 inch long and 2 millimeters wide. 

I did not open this hive up today other than to check for the West Hive Beetle trap which I posted about separately.  I may need to open it up to check for moths.

Well, I don't think these worms were wax moths.  I just looked at some pictures and don't see much of a resemblence.  I took a picture of the worms, I will have to get it uploaded.

A wax moth is bigger than that by the time it spins a cocoon.
