Something to note at this point is that honey bees have built honey comb for centuries without any intervention by anything. Our Langstroth bee hives are supplied with wax starter strips only to help ensure the bees build in the centre of the frame & that's all.
The Jackson hive does not come with wax strarter strips or beeswax foundation sheets included in the price. You would need to purchase wax foundation sheets, cut them into strips and insert them yourself using a wax embedder or flat knife.
Pure bees Wax foundation sheets or even wax starter strips do assist in attracting honey bee scouts to a potential catch box or empty bee hive. The scent is picked up during the heat of the day as the internal temperature of the bee hiveheats up and causes beeswax scent to eminate from the hive.
Beeswax sheets can also be used to roll beeswax candles. This is quite expensive and beeswax is extremely hard to come by let alone be used in a situation where it cannot be recyclable. Beekeepers are reluctant to have pure beeswax leave the industry for use as beeswax candles or otherwise.
If you collect then the price is as quoted.
Bee hives have been around for centuries in different shapes, designs and sizes. It wasn't until the Langstroth design that the bee hive actually became standardised. There are still many different types of bee hive in use across the world.
The mainstream beehive designs used in South Africa are the Langstroth beehive & Jackson Beehive. The Langstroth Bee hive hasn't been changed much since its first inception in the 1800s. Small changes have been made do incorporate aluminium covers, the type of weather protection used on the wood and the use of a queen excluder to prevent egg laying in the super chamber.
The bee hive made beekeeping manageable as before the advent of the bee hive, honey bee colonies would be raided for their golden liquid and usually the colony would be destroyed in the process. This created the need for a manageable method to keep bees, transport them and harvest honey from them without causing damage or destruction to the bee colony.
