- May 5, 2010I've used plastic foundation for at least 15 years with no problems, CCD or whatever. I'm not a fan of plastic, but I don't think it is necessarily a toxic soup in all applications.

Date: Monday, May 3, 2010, 2:54 PMIf it is PLASTIC through the crap away. Plastic has no place in a hive of bees. Use wood, medal, or Bees wax only. I know of people who are really big on not using chemicals on bees then use plastic foundation, and or plastic frames, plastic queen excluders and such. Plastic is Toxic! it is Toxic to us and is toxic to bees. Plastic along with High-fructose corn syrup (HFCS) is likely the biggest cause of "Colony Collapse Disorder.Sammy
