Wax Moths are fascinating and beautiful.  The moth's life cycle progresses from egg, larva, pupa to winged adult. Wax Moths pose a threat to bees and can destroy entire bee colonies. The wax moth larva eats honey, pollen, wax, bee shell cases and bee larva while leaving trails of silken larval webbing. Strong bee colonies can prevent the destruction from this parasite.
