Thanks for your answers!

Jim, did you ever get wax moths in those two cedar hives that you built? I think the solution to the SHB is total all day long sunshine. I had a guy from Jax put bees on my land for several years and he lost several hives from the SHB, but they were in the shade part of the day. Mine are in total sun all day long and I have very few beetles in my hives.

No wax moths but I lost my first hive to hive beetles because the nuc that I bought had a queen with defective wings and all she did was produce drones. It was replaced, for free with a full hive with 1 deep super that was just starting to be filled. I didn't see wax moths until I started using the cypress and sweet gum hives that I built. I had a lot of sweet gum available so I used it.
