Freeze, Warm, Scratch and Repeat When the bees have capped the cells, put the drone frame in a plastic bag and freeze it overnight. The next day, let it warm to room temperature and drag your capping scratcher across the cells to break them open. Put the frame back in the hive so worker bees can clean out the dead drones and mites. Once the cells are refilled and capped, repeat the cycle. These frames come evenly coated in 30g of heat treated and clarified wax, so are ready to put straight into the hive! NOTE: Products containing wax are unable to be shipped to Western Australia due to state biosecurity requirements.
