I just had my first ever experience with wax moths. I noticed that one of my hives was not very active and when I got into it, I noticed wax moths. They had totally destroyed the comb and there was hardly a bee in there. So I tore it down and took the comb out and burned it. This was the hive that I know swarmed earlier because I saw it swarm. I got into another hive that was next to it today, and it was stronger than I thought. I saw the queen and capped brood, but they did have a lot of bees & honey. HOWEVER, I got into the swarm that I caught from this hive and I saw the queen, but very few bees, little honey and NO brood. I don't know what to do about this hive, but I did NOT see any wax moths. What should I do with this tiny bunch of bees? I put some sugar on them with a top feeder. This has been the worst bee year ever here in this part of the country. We had a long cold and wet spring and the nice weather with blooms was not very long until we got the hot dry weather. I just hope and pray for a good fall flow or I won't get any honey at all. I am just glad I didn't pull any honey earlier, it may take all of it to get the hives through the winter. Good thing I don't do this for the honey money! I just really enjoy watching the bees and for the pollenation they do for us here on the farm. The honey is just an added bonus for us.
