When making splits yesterday I saw what looked like a bigger Wax moth with crippled wings. I moved like one too, trying to run away without flying. And this one couldn’t fly at all. Is it a bigger wax moth? Can wax moth be affected by Deformed Wing Virus? And can it spread the virus to other bees? I guess though not as effective as other bees when they drift into neighboring hives, or rob them.


Waxmoth with DWV?
