My bees will not touch any plastic comb if it's not treated with wax first. Put some in a hive because I was out of frames and permacomb with wax. Bees never touched it. But they worked the other frames.How necessary is it to cover the plastic with wax? Will the bees not use HSC pre-drawn plastic comb if you don't add wax? What about pre-drawn plastic drone comb?
Answer is YES to both :thumbsup: When warm it does go on better and I have used it on waxed and unwaxed. I save a few cents on the unwaxed and think the bees like there own local wax. I have noticed one thing; the bees will glean all the wax off one frame and use it elsewere and go back to that frame and draw it when needed.I bet you could leave the block of wax out in the sun for a while and it would go on fairly well. Do you use it on already waxed foundation? Do they draw it out quicker then?
