    Default Re-using plastic foundation?

    Has anyone had any luck re-using plastic foundation that has been subject to wax moths, mold etc? I have not. It seems as thought the bees don't want it a second time around. How have you cleaned it? Thanks.

    Have reused thousands of frames this way, scrape down to plastic with hive tool, recoat with liquid wax via a roller, and the bees go right at it. As long as they are in expansion mode.
