Beeswax is a bee product, and at the same time, in beekeeping, it is a reproductive material. It is a product of young bees that secrete it from their wax-producing glands. Conditions for secreting wax are warm weather and a good intake of both nectar and pollen.
Bee’s wax in therapy: When preparing wax for therapy, its plates are previously chopped to small pieces, and them melted in a pot with double bottom or placed in a smaller pot and then put that one in a bigger one with heated water.
By removing lids from wax cells before COLLECTING HONEY you get wax lids. If the honey comb is virgin (from which young bees did not hatch), then this is the most quality BEES’S WAX along with honey these lids make an extraordinary treat.
Large and small wax moth is small and unnoticeable butterflies whose life depends on the life and work of bees. As most insects from the butterfly family, wax moth is a vermin. It lives anywhere where there are bees, except in large altitudes and regions with harsh climate.
WAX is the product of wax glands of young worker bees. When covering the honey comb with ripe honey, bees use wax, red powder, propolis and secretion from jaw glands. There are assumptions that bees while covering comb on dry (the existence of air layer under the lid) add at the top of the honey a micro-drop of bees poison.
For a longer period of time, beekeeping world points to the problem of contaminated WAX. By treating bees against pests, and mostly varroa, various products are inserted in the hive.
