Learning Beekeeping – Solar Wax Melters


The Solar wax melter is really the best way to deal with wax for any beekeeper who doesn't live in the Arctic. In this video, I show a simple solar wax melter thats good if you have 1 or 2 hives. Then I show a larger one that is for beekeepers with many hives.

    Nicely done. If you do transition to a metal sheet, don’t use galvanized steel because any remaining honey will cause it to acidify and turn black and this will discolor your wax.
