Adding additional wax can greatly improve the acceptance of frames by bees, plus the rate that they will draw them out. Frames are available with a heavier layer of wax.
Alternatively, you can add more wax yourself using a foam paint roller or brush. You will need 1 to 1-1/2 pounds of wax for 10 deep frames. For safety reasons, beeswax needs to be melted in a double boiler or crockpot.
I have followed the arguments back and forth among beekeepers about plastic frames. But, when I ordered a new deep box for a new colony I was establishing, it came with heavy waxed black plastic frames. So, I put the box on the already filled bottom brood box and then added a feeder and fed with sugar syrup. I gave them almost two weeks to get to work. When I opened the box on Saturday, I was delighted. 10 of 10 frames with newly drawn comb only the 10th frame wasn’t completely drawn and brood in four or five of those frames. I’ll be purchasing these going forward as they are quite sturdy and the bees seem to take to them.
I have always been satisfied with my purchases. Thank You for the great service and quality you put into your products!
Love the ease of using these & my bees took to them right away. Won’t ever go back to wooden foundations. Great price, too.
