These are the thoughts that led me to start with a top bar hive, or a foundationless lang. (I chose TBH)but they may, and you should, depending on the quality of wax they are processing. I would like to know other then heating and presssing how they get the inpurities out of the wax? I have seen pallets of wax sent in to dealers that look like they only melted down the brood comb and sent it in. So now I am down river getting their problems. any thoughts?
