Example text

After clustering for around 24 hours, the small wax scales are secreted. Uses Wax is the bees’ basic house-building unit. It is often mixed with some propolis (see below) for strength and, without it, a colony could not exist. It takes over 7 kg (15 lb) of honey to produce 1 kg (2 lb) of wax, and so you can see that, if you take away the beeswax at harvest time for sale as comb honey, the bees will need to use up a large amount of honey to replace it. It becomes a matter of working out what will make the most money for the beekeeper – selling honey alone and preserving the wax for a good harvest the next year or a second harvest in year one, or selling more expensive comb honey and letting the bees use up valuable honey in replacing it.

Whether propolis exhibits bactericidal or bacteriostatic characteristics often depends on its concentration in the applied extract. Sometimes, however, propolis extracts are more effective than commercially available drugs. Don’t ignore the possibilities of propolis, and see Chapter 12 for harvesting ideas. PRODUCING VENOM Protecting yourself against stings Honey-bee venom has evolved as an effective defence mechanism over millions of years and is one of the reasons why everyone isn’t a beekeeper.

Participating in multiple sex Research has shown that worker bees back in the colony will pay more attention to a queen that has mated with a large number of drones than to one that has mated with fewer, and that they will more readily accept her. The multiple-mated queen and the queen mated fewer times have been found to have pheromonal differences, behavioural differences and queen/worker interaction differences. In other words, the more matings the better. If a beekeeper is introducing an expensively purchased queen to a colony, this is an important matter, and scientists therefore hope to devise a test so that beekeepers can know the quality of the queen they buy from a queen rearer.
