Anguish

Wax moths destroyed our oldest hive. On July 1, we harvested 10 frames of gorgeous, amber-colored honey from that hive. In mid-August, we checked to see how they were doing with the new frames we’d added. Today, the entire hive was overrun with wax moth larvae that had destroyed everything in their path: comb, honey, brood.

I am heartbroken.
