I opened a hive during inspection and there was a moth flying around. I think it popped out when I opened the hive but can't be sure. I've also been seeing a similar looking moth sitting on the outside of the hive body. I killed it tonight.

Will the bees deal with a few of these themselves. All the comb looked good. It's bad enough I saw a small hive beetle in my smallest hive :-x

They will if there is enough bees to cover 90% of the comb area. If not, keep a watch on it or reduce their space.
