A how to video for those interested in dipping their BeeHives in a mixture of Gum Rosin and Paraffin wax.
what is the size of your tank
Can you specify what tipe of paraffin you use? Thanks
It is the resin or sap from a pine tree that has been dried. Baseball pitchers use it in a powder form to help get a better grip on the ball.
What is Gum Rosin?
how long does this process last and how often do you re-dip your hive
good way to protect the entire hive box as compared to painting just the outside of the box… good idea to always have a fire extinguisher handy – safey is always part of the plan.
Do you ever need to re-dip any of the wooden ware?
nice very nice because i like honey uuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuma
75% parrafin wax and 25% Gum Rosin
great vid man. what is the mix ratio that you use for wax/gum? Does the was really have to be that hot?
Great video! The background is beautiful. The fog, birds chirping – it looks like you live in the Smokey Mountains!
You have a lot of bee hives!
