Why don't my bees like to use the plastic frames? I bought plastic wax coated frames thinking it would be easier to harvest the honey but the girls don't seem to like them. The wooden frames with wax foundations are drawn out but not a bit of cells on the plastic ones. Any thoughts?

They will take to them after that new plastic smell is gone .( and they have no where else to put all that happy juice (2:1) they will plop out wax and make the prettiest comb.

Slather on some melted beeswax with a brush or a small roller, problem solved!
