I imagine the waxmoth is similar to the (clothing) webbing moth.
Prevention and/or control of this pest can be accomplished
chemically (fumigation, etc.); by storage in an oxygen-free
environment (using barrier film envelopes and an oxygen scavenger);
by extremes of temperature (freezing, etc.); and by storage in a
well-sealed container (after any larvae or eggs have been
destroyed.)

The artist may contact me directly if she would like more
information on barrier film envelopes, etc.
