Re: Paraffin and Beeswax
I am no authority on this topic, & considered doing what you are doing, but lack time ...
It is my understanding that "early in the history of foundation" paraffin was used for foundation. the bees accepted it, but the combs built on paraffin foundation collapsed "due to the lower melting temperature".
Last year, I just used opened up dog & cat food sacks on top of the top boards. They are moisture resistant, & they lasted for a few months. Another option might be garbage bags, but I did not run out of feed sacks. Good Luck with your traps ... CE
Started summer of 2013, just another new guy, tinkering with bees.
