It's worth remembering that Wax moth will never kill or even have an effect on a strong healthy hive housed in the right number of boxes for its size

I was thinking for storage. Like are there parts of NZ that have more trouble than others?

Wax moth didn't kill these 2 hives, they would have been too weak for whatever reason- diseases/ viruses/ parasites/ queen failure/ etc and the moth has gone to town in all the beeless frames.
