I didn't know that bees harvest wax, but they have been working for days on this inner cover in a drizzle, packing it on their pollen baskets. There is a flow on, but maybe the poor weather making them lazy to draw their own?

Around here, mine collect propolis and beeswax from any idle equipment where it is exposed. I notice it best on open boxes of PF120 frames, when there are some unused frames still in the boxes and the bees can access them.
