I was wondering if anyone knew if copper affects Bees. I was looking to do a project and it calls for using copper metal and I did try and look it up on google and couldn't find anything. The metal will be used as a heat conductor for wax and I didn't know if it would contaminate wax. I figured since aluminum and steel has been used for this too then the contamination level would be the same if any at all, but was going to make sure that copper didn't hold some sort of inhibitor or something that would affect the bees. If no one knows then i guess i will be the first to find out.
