painting melted beeswax on frames
« on: April 16, 2013, 07:08:41 PM »
I recently purchased a shamrock mini mating nuc . it was suggested to me that I paint melted  wax on the frames. See picture. is it too much wax on this frame?

IMHO mini mating nuc are a waste of resources if you are not raising Queens by the hundreds.
