Melted beeswax and the bees in my neighborhood
So I bought a block of wax last weekend at the farmers market and I put it into my small crock pot and melted it. I was going to paint beeswax on some starter strips that were not just wax.
I decided, I should do this outside; I didnâ€™t want to get wax on the floor.
So I set up outside, not much there just carried the wax outside and started painting the strips.
Well it seemed the bees from the neighborhood showed up at that smell. One then 3 them 5, then I am backpedaling into the room through the door and the bees are following me. I walk back outside and the bees are making a line into the room.
So another lesson learned. Use hot beeswax at night not during a bright sunny high pressure day.
