Microcrystalline Wax 4.5kg
Microcrystalline Wax together with an equal part of Paraffin Wax, is used to preserve wooden hive boxes.
A hot-wax dipped hive can be expected to 20 years and more by preventing the ingress of moisture which facilitates wood rot.
Dry rot is the term given to brown rot decay caused by certain fungi that deteriorate timber in buildings and other wooden construction without an apparent source of moisture.
The term Dry Rot is a misnomer because all wood decaying fungi need a minimum amount of moisture before decay begins.
