Re: My bees HATE platic frames and foundation!
If I paint the plastic (even wax coated) and place them in the hives, on a flow, with a full moon, they draw them. If the y do not get done by the end of the flow they stay half drawn for the last 3 years. The frames that I painted years ago, no go. I made the mistake of putting undrawn plastic in the center of the drawn wax, this year. They drew out the wax to 2x and did not even start the wax. I do love them when they are drawn. They seem to be bullet proof, a lot less screwing around and you can just about run over them with the truck (I did that to a box of wax foundation in the late fall).
