I just cleaned some plastic frames from my in laws that had some hives not make it. Some of the frames revealed starvation with a few bees headfirst in the cells. All the frames with white wax, were easy to clean. When I got to the brood area of the frame, I was gritting my teeth:scratch: trying to scrape it off. I would then use a jet stream of water to wash off the foundation and hang them to dry. I did keep some of the frames full of white wax. Will anything need to be done to get the bees to take on the frames? Should I add more wax? I left some of the white wax around the edges to help the bees get started. This is the first time I have tried recycling with frames like this.
