I’ve talked to a beekeeper who soaked his hives (a side at a time in melted paraffin wax. Along with protecting the wood, the (Langstroth) bodies came apart easier and the propolis (bee glue) was easier to scrape off. Whenever he worked on his hive bodies he would dip them again. No priming, no scraping, and he thought the bees liked it. -Jack
