    Default ants proof-high temp grease 2x4 hive stand

    Here is a simple to build 2x4 ants proof (high temp grease) wooden hive stand. I like the idea to place my bee hives after an ant loss last year,
    at the same ants hill again or at any location, individually in the shade or out in full sun. I built a prototype last year and put 4 medium supers on
    without any issue. But forgot the ant proof high temp grease inside the cups idea from here. So don't throw away your after use instant noodle temper resistant (sorta) non-biodegradable plastic cups from Thailand, o.k. Don't forget to reuse and recycle too! Good for your bees and the environment as well.

    They make a food grade grease that is MORE environmentally friendly that will produce the same results.

    You mean the Crisco shortening? I can test that as well. But don't know the high temp of it.
    What is the food grade eco-friendly grease we have out there?

    It is primarily used in water treatment facilities and food processing plants. I used to use it all the time for pump bearings and such. Not sure even what it was called it was sooooo long ago.

    Can we ask people here to see if they know the name of it?
