So here is an idea I am pondering …
It’s getting to be time to add my flow frames above my two brood boxes.
I am considering “rinsing” each side of each frame with syrup (2-1) and then rubbing each side with some of the wax I have collected so far. Maybe even rinse with local honey from another beek.
Alternatively I am thinking of taking a deep cookie sheet and adding an inch or so of water. After heating the water I will add some wax to creat a layer on the water. Into that I will “dip” each flow Frame side to prime it with wax.
Should I be committed? How crazy are these ideas? Could they work?
PS I am going to do this outside so as to not burn the house down.
