Wax Moth

This was the first pest that I actually recognized as causing a problem. I found perhaps a dozen of them in my weakest hive during the Summer months and had to meticulously kill them. Fortunately, the bees had prevented them from doing a lot of damage.

My subsequent research has indicated that this is a possible solution:

Take a 2 litre plastic pop bottle and drill a 1 to 1.25 inch hole just below the slope on the neck, then add 1 cup water, 1 cup sugar, 1 half cup white vinegar and finally 1 banana peel. Wait a few days till it starts to ferment, then tie it into a tree close to the hives. This trap will draw the wax moth, they enter the hole can’t get out and drown in the liquid, this will even draw in and kill the bald faced hornet.
