Good morning,

Having some thoughts about bee wax and comb.  If I put thin shavings of bee wax on top of  frames that have not bee drawn out, would the bees use this making new comb?

Let me have your thoughts.

Once in a while they will move wax around in a hive, but mostly they ignore old wax and let it fall or haul it out.  I have not seen a way to give them wax and have them use it.
