How to deal with wax moth?

Hey beeks! The last few times I've inspected my hives, I've found lesser wax moth around the hive (in the top 'roof' and one leaving the entrance).

There are no other signs, from what I can tell, on the frames, but I'm expecting to see damage from the moth babies in the coming weeks.

To stop them from decimating the comb, what would be the best approach to removing them?

From the books I have, the best option is prevention by way of traps, but I think it's too late for that this time around. I'll be popping out some traps for next season though!

Has anyone else had success with wax moth?
