I heard honeybee hives are often invaded by waxmoths. I am curious if in states like New York do these moths live here being winters get to freezing? Waxworms are sold as feeder insects for frogs and lizards and I know at pet stores the moths sometimes escape and fly outside and we have wild honeybee hives here.
