how can you tell the difference between bees wax and propolis in the hive? Tom
Good question bro… Propolis is normorally the sticky brownish/rusty stuff the the bees add to crack, seams, top of frames n other places to help seal out the Wx. The wax is usually opac n near clear to cream color when new n fresh. Bees build their honeycomb out of wax n propolis is bee glue on everything !
Thankz for that excellent question. Other maybe add to my try at an answer too. Keep the questions coming … we’ll try our best to give you an answer quickly.
