Junkyard Grubbers

Those late Summer pests, Wax Moths, lay their eggs in the wax of the combs.  the larvae emerge and eat the wax from the brood sections of the hive.  This is because they (the wax moth larvae) get most of their nutrition from various impurities found in brood comb wax and in order to get to that junk, they eat the wax too.
