If I find any "black lumps" I immediately suspect Chalk brood as the larvae is covered in the spores of Ascosphaera apis which is of fungal composition.The cappings are removed by the bees and some of the dead larvae remains chalky-white but others become dark blue grey and almost black.
I don't think larvae of wax moth as being black but I suppose it could bee.

Regards;
