Or shove the whole thing in a net bag in a solar melter. Once you have the wax off, give the bag a shake and all the brood cacoons fall into it. Take the empty frame out and put it back in the solar melter to finish off.
Too messy for me. But then I’m lazy.
Don't be put off by plastic ends. They have their uses for mixed frames and I use them often. There is NOTHING wrong with them if used properly.
They are very useful if you are collecting a swarm as they keep the frames apart when you move the box and they stop you from squishing your bees or the queen. I have a small box that I have had for years I take them off when the bees are settled.
