    Did you try rubbingor spraying it down with some kind of organic oil to keep it from sticking?

      We did, but we were told the wax build up would be pretty thick. We didn’t want to damage the hive once the establish.

      It did… but you’ll need to figure out a way to open for harvesting if they’ve sealed off the drawers. We ended up transferring the hive to a standard box system. This way we didn’t disturb the bees as much during harvest.
