OTHER METHODS OF COLLECTING WAX
1. Solar wax extractor: The heat of the sun can be used to
melt wax. The wax is put into a filtering bag and placed on a
metal tray in an insulated box under a glass cover and set in
the sun. A metal lip directs the melting wax into a container.
Care has to be taken not to allow the wax to overheat and
blacken or burn.
