After I had strained / drained the honey for about 36 hours, I decided to let the bees clean up the rest that was left in the strainer. I poured the wax out on a piece of cardboard and also left the paint strainer there for the bees to work over. here's the photographic results.

Are the bees finished with this wax? I thought they would carry it with them to reuse in the hive after they had the honey out of it.

If they don't want it, I'll use to melt my 100% beeswax foundation in place for next spring.

If you leave it in its crumbly state, you can try to fix the foundation in place by pressing the "crumbs" firmly while warm. No need to melt it.
