I've always been a wood and wax guy myself. I had some health issues that reduced my prep time, so I bought 150 sheets of permadent and threw them on in supers. The white wax was showing up in all my home colonys, so I went and checked out the placed colonys. Hadn't touched them. Another week went by and I checked them again. They had jumped all over the permadent and were going to town. Once they are drawn, no problems at all. A couple colonys got very lethargic, as if they were going to swarm instead of move onto the new plastic, so it had me a bit concerned. But eventually. all of them worked the plastic.
