Re: Interested in Local Beeswax (California)
This season the bees made many drawn frames. Many of them have the wax foundation all wired in. If the wax is contaminated then
the larvae and broods will never survived. The Germany post is a good example of contaminated wax they bought. Coming from a reputable
bee company in business for many years here I'm sure their wax is clean and usable. I have not use any chemical or organic treatment for 3 seasons already. So not all wax are contaminated even though my bees forage within a 3 mile radius. If what they carry in is contaminated I will see sign of hive trouble soon. So far everything is still growing as natural as possible!
Don't mix foreign bees into a virgin hive. She might get balled 100% of the time! When will you ever learn, huh?
