Wanna see something gross? How about some fat, juicy, wiggly wax moth larvae crawling around on your expensive bee frames. That is what I found when I opened a box that I had tightly sealed inside a large garbage bag with Moth crystals inside. The problem, I think, is I didn't freeze the frame before bagging it and I didn't put in enough crystals. To treat for wax moth use the organic pesticide BT. It won't hurt bees but will kill worms when they eat something with BT on it.
One of the toughest moments in our homesteading journey is when we got wax moths in our beehive. Join us as we show you what a wax moth is and why it is important to identify them quickly. This video will also discuss the different ways to treat your hives so that this beehive pest will not continue to destroy future beehives.

B401 (also known as Certan) is a preventative treatment that controls wax moth. It is a safe and environmentally friendly product based on a concentrated solution of Bacillus thuringiensis, a micro-organism. For more information, see http://www.vita-europe.com/products/b401/
Wax moth are not usually a problem in Ohio till June or July. But we had a warmer winter than usual and they survived. So I will demonstrate how to take care of them. In order for the BT to work it needs to be eaten by larva. More information on BT can be found here. http://www.bt.ucsd.edu/organic_farming.html Follow me: http://honeycomb-hill-beekeeping.blogspot.com/ -~-~~-~~~-~~-~- Please watch: " Caging A Queen Bee " ➨ https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3M8iB_Kus_w -~-~~-~~~-~~-~-

First pesticides nearly destroy my bee hive. Then the wax moths move in.
Date produced: 1988 Description: An historical look at the use of Bacillus thuringiensis (BT) insecticide for control of budworm outbreaks. This production is one of a collection of historical films and videos that were digitized as part of the celebration of the centenary of the BC Forest Service in 2012. Digitization was done through a grant from the UBC Ike Barber Learning Centre and funding from the BC Forest Service Centenary Society. This production is presented by the BC Forest Service for educational and historical reference purposes only. It represents the public policies, activities, technology and understanding of natural resource management at the date it was produced. It is hoped that by sharing these historical perspectives we can better understand the evolution in technology and knowledge that the BC Forest Service has experienced since 1912.
I thought it might be an idea to test the Panasonic HDC SD 100 right now in mother nature on the balcony. The nest is less than one month old, I first realised it on the 8 of may, when something big was flying around my ears. Against the bee moth (Aphomia sociella Linnaeus) this year I sprayed Xentari (Bacillus thuringiensis subspec. aizawai) You still can see remaining parts of the web of last years disaster on the wood where the nest is fixed.
