A Greater Wax Moth larva found in Prince George's Co., Maryland (7/2015). It was found in a bumble bee nest built inside of a chickadee nest. The chickadee nest was in a nest box, but the bees evicted the chickadees and claimed it for themselves. The waxworm was not formally invited. Photo by Wayne Boo. Waxworm wrangling by Desiree Narango.
