Wax Moths


Lesser Wax Moth

Wax Moth
Thanks to C.fletcher and Yorkshire moths for the id on the wax moth.Both these species assosiate with bee hives so I presume they are from the local Shibden Honey hives in Northowram.The Lesser Wax Moth runs around like a Mouse Moth.

Hi Andy
It looks like a very badly rubbed Grass Moth of some sort.
