Honey bees forage amongst flowering plants for nectar which they turn into honey, propolis which they use to keep the inside of their nest clean, pollen which they use to feed their developing larvae, and water which is used to dilute the honey and to cool down the inside of the nest on hot days.
Everything is stored in beeswax comb, that the bees make themselves.
We humans have, for millennia, collected spare honey and excess propolis, and have melted down beeswax from combs the bees no longer need. To find out more about how we use these hive products check out the dropdown tabs.
