Speaking of wax moth, I visited an out apiary of mine after a couple weeks back in early Oct. There were six British National hives in row. All seemed okay till I looked into the last but one... EEK!! What a horrible mess.
Now this had been quite a stong hive, and I was just feeding up for winter. There was not a bee in sight, dead or alive and no honey at all. I guess that they had absconded, and a few weeks earlier a friend from the village had had a Hollywood Horror Film, type experience when what he thought was swarm settled all over his car. He had to drive away at speed to dislodge them.
I brought the Hive home and, yes Jorn my free range chickens had a feast, I blow torched the hive body and burnt the frames, but what a vile mess, and those maggots were about a an inch long. Yuk Yuk and Yuk again!
Just thought I'd tell you this little tale!
