I have a question about bees and beeswax.

I know it helps to put extra wax on the plastic foundation and permacomb/SHC for the bees to except the stuff.

I know it takes 8 pounds of honey or SW equivalent to make 1 pound of comb.

So, what would happen if I put a small bar of beeswax in the hive? Perhabs on top of the box with all founation or on the top of the frames just below the box of new foundation.

Will the bees chew this wax and use it to make new comb?

My mind is alway churning......guess that's part of have a bad case of ADD.
