Re: Plastic foundation getting a bad rap?
I use pierco plastic foundation. I melt wax in a crock pot and use a 3" chip brush and brush on another coat. All I have available to me is the allready waxed foundation. I have found that when you put on another box, wether it us a super or a deep they will immediately start to form out the cell long before they actually will draw it out. Which tells me they like what I have given them. The pierco deep foundation comes black and it makes it much easier seeing the eggs. I have actually put wax foundation in the same hive with the pierco and they drew out the recoated foundation before they did the wax. Love my Pierco!!
So much to learn, so little time!!
