How beeswax is made

Bees secret beeswax from their wax glands. Honeybees have four pairs of wax glands on the underside of their abdomen. Once secreted, the brittle flakes or scales of wax will be moved to the jaws or mandibles of the bee. They will chew and mold it to make it soft and pliable. The bees will then passed on the wax to other worker bees who will use it for building comb. In order to make just one single gram of wax, the bees will need to produce approximately 1100 flakes of wax. The wax-flakes are initially clear and odourless. It is only later that the wax will adopt its characteristic colour and smell. This happens when pollen and propolis gets worked into the wax. So, would you like to know more about the beeswax we use and how our bees make it? Read about it here.
