first, I'm a wannabe and I'm trying to figure out what to order. So I'm looking through the dadant catalog and the "Western Bee Supplies" catalog. For the frames, it seems there are lots of ways to go. I'm guessing that the most popular way is the plastic with a wax coating. The old way was to take some wax and press it into sheets with the hex pattern, then heat the wires and press the sheets into the frames. Now I'm really curious .... When you have harvested the honey, do you just put the complete cell back in the hive? If you want the wax, do you scrape some of the wax off and leave some of the wax? Do you ever take the frame apart? The only Dadant catalog I have right now is for 2003 and they say "new this year" a frame and the plastic part, all one solid piece. Worth considering?
