Waxworm Disaster Question of the Week...(long-OT)

I just divided my (overly) thriving wax moth colony into several new containers filled with some freshly made bran/honey mix. Result: Colony wiped from the face of the earth. The only thing I can think of which could have killed the waxworms off this effectively would be some type of contamination or pesticide residue in the honey I used. This honey WAS from a private beekeeper, so my question is: Since the wax moth IS a pest of beehives, is there something that could have been in the honey that is a specific for wax moth larvae? Never had this type of major die-off before...
