Beeswax is a valuable substance produced by bees and used for the construction of honey combs. It is secreted by four pairs of wax glands situated on the surface of the abdominal sternites (plates on the lower part of the bee’s body). Bees are stimulated to produce wax when there is a surplus of honey and honey combs are needed for its storage.
Pure wax is white, but after bees’ manipulation it is soon coloured (in shades of yellow, orange and red to brown), which is due to the presence of various substances, especially flower pollen.
Beeswax has hundreds of applications in medicine, cosmetics and industry, but is mainly used for the preparation of wax bases using various methods for pressing, casting and rolling.
Beeswax is a valuable resource for generation of income. A kilogram of beeswax has a higher value than a kilogram of honey. Unlike honey, beeswax is not a food product and is treated more easily – no precise packaging is necessary, which simplifies its storage and transportation.
