Is there anything that propolis won't stick to. I have a door on a hive and I would prevent the bees from glueing it so it can't be opened easily?

Melt some paraffin wax and paint it. I use it on my frame rests and top bars to keep the bees from glueing them.

It won't stick to vaseline or mineral oil.
