I knew bees collected pollen and made honey but did not know about the propolis. They are busy little bees. Thanks for an informative and entertaining article. Smiling Group hug

I'd heard of it, but didn't know what it was. I use local raw honey daily in my coffee, and I'm happy to learn about other bee products. Thanks!

Are you gonna write an article about royal jelly? I've heard that was something that's good for us, too.
