2018 July Field Day Propolis & All things Propolis

Sunday 29 July, 2018 @ 10:00 am

presented by Matt Reed

Propolis is the sticky resin that bees collect from tree buds, sap flowers, and other botanical sources. Often referred to as bee glue as they use it to seal unwanted holes and glue in the frames. It is the main reason beekeepers need their hive tool. For more info see the full details in our blog.
