    WD-40

    Try it, you'll like it. It's great for cleaning the remaining sticky off that tape will leave behind. It will disolve wax and not harm plastic. Good on glass too.

    Hello Michael and Everyone,

    Lloyd Spears, over on the Bee-l list, suggested using warm vegetable oil. It emulsifies the wax and leaves an easily cleaned and food friendly substance behind.

    Haven't tried it but will when I put the observation hive into operation this spring.

    Thanks all. I'll try them both and see how it works. I just built several observation hive with plexi this last year. The one in my living room is glass.
