Wax Coating Hive

We are grateful you are here

Wax Coating Hive

this is not a direct replacement for wax dipping and removing moisture from the wood, but is a sacrificial layer/moisture barrier

I’m sure it’s been done, but I do not have a wax dipping setup and do not have enough equipment to justify one. I melted wax in a steel pot on a single burner and painted the wax with a brush onto the exterior surface of the hive. It worked well! Not a good idea for a lot of equipment at once. But a couple hives at a time would be fine.
