I’m a new beekeeper and i started this spring with 4 hives. 3 of them i started with wax foundation and the bees took to them really well. however I have been reading allot about bee and colony health and one thins that is mentioned allot is to avoid wax foundation due to the chemicals that it comes with from previous treatment that it may had.
allot of what i’m watching/reading is from beekeepers in the U.S and was wondering if anyone in Australia has had any bad experience from using contaminated wax sheets.
I guess what i would like to know is “ how good is the wax foundation quality in general” and has anyone found any to be contaminated ?
