WHAT have I DONE!
Arrrrg! IT's EVERYWHERE!
ok, I only have one hive, they did pretty good, but not enough to take a LOT of honey off of them.
I opted to take only one frame of the whole med super they filled up. It's all they have, not including what they have in the brood chambers.
So, I take the one frame. Cut it out, smush it up, strain it and get a beautiful quart plus a tad full of honey.
I take the smushed comb and honey, gently heat, pour off honey and have wax left.
I melt wax again in seperat container then strain for purified and pour into "mold". so now all the work is done, OR SO I THOUGHT!
It seems that anything the melted beeswax has touched WON'T come off!
It's on metal pots, glass pots, wooden spoons a big variety of items.
I ran it all through the dishwasher and the wax is still stuck fast as if never even touched!
What do I need to get this bees wax off of my pots and pans!
When your ship comes in, make sure you are willing to unload it.
