Melting Down Brood Comb - Bee Vlog - Mar 10, 2014

It takes a bit of time and some sacrificial equipment, but melting bees wax isn't difficult.

  1. Thanks for making this video, Bill. I had tried to melt brood comb in my solar oven, but it was a smoky mess and never really melted. I've been sitting on a mountain of comb wondering how to render it when I noticed your video. I'm going to try it out...after I get prepared for swarm season because I think it's going to be early this year.
    Thanks again.

    1. Hi Pat. Good luck to you. Be sure to use some pots and pans that will be permanently used to render wax. It's not easy to clean them.
