pollen & propolis traps

Propolis Trap (10-Frame)


Propolis is a resinous mixture that honey bees produce from saliva, beeswax and the exude of tree buds, sap flows and other botanical sources.

It is used by honey bees as both a sterilising agent and a sealant for unwanted open spaces in the hive. The medicinal properties of propolis have been known to humans since ancient times. Modern research has shown that propolis is an effective antimicrobial that may also be useful in the treatment of skin cancers.

Contemporary propolis products include ingestible capsules, tinctures, lozenges, toothpaste and soap.
