Re: Moths

Try the greater wax moth (Gallaria mallonela sp?  It's been a long time
since I did entomology).  Can probablly get a starter for a bait shop or
someone who raises honey bees (pest that invades hive).  The media was a
mixure of honey, glycerol, beeswax and some other goodies (eg. ceral).  If
I have time I can look up the mixture.  I am sure there is a protocol
online somewhere...
