Will the bees except fully drawn wax foundation for the brood chamber and plastic for any upper chambers? I know it has been said not to mix plastic and wax but if the wax foundation is already drawn out, then will the bee than draw out the plastic?

How do you convert a hive with all wax to all plastic?

If you have a strong flow going, the bees will draw out plastic above wax foundation. It's when you mix and match wax and plastic that things get messy (in the same box).
