    I have bee hives and wax worms are a problem in weak hives. I've fed wax worms along with their larva and adult moths to my chickens. If you leave bee's wax in a hive(I ASSUME ANY BOX) wax worms will show up. Let anyone that has bees within a few hundred yards of know what you are doing. They might be spraying for them.

    I hear they are a real pain in the butt for bee keepers.


    thanks
