Re: How to separate Propolis/ wax scrapings
This may help.
The wax you are getting from hive maintenance should be re-used in hive maintenance.
What I mean is melt it down and process it. If you can separate the propolis before melting do it but otherwise don't sweat it too much. Once you've processed it down plan on using it for coating new plastic foundations. The bees don't care if it isn't 100% pure wax. They build comb way faster it there's a nice layer of wax on fresh foundations.
The cappings wax from honey extraction is what you probably want to process and sell. It's way easier to get it pure plus it's the good white wax usually.
Internet credibility is an oxymoron
