    Smile Lapps bee supply

    Just a quick note to pass along positive experience.
    I have placed several orders with Lapps last year and this year, They have always been helpful and my ordes will usually arrive within 2 days.
    You can bet they will keep getting bussiness from me!

    Default Adulterated Beeswax

    We have enjoyed shopping at Lapp's Bee Supply for the last year, but they recently sold us beeswax that was adulterated with Paraffin. I wouldn't trust their beeswax anytime soon, and we are considering buying our beekeeping supplies elsewhere in the future.

    How did you determine that the bees wax had paraffin added?

    I have also had friendly and quick service from Lapps, though I came to them initially only because they're the only place I could find that sold smaller (5#) amounts of brewer's yeast for making patties.

    We determined it through several properties of the wax. First, paraffin is brittle, and beeswax is pretty pliable and strong - the wax block broke very easily. Second, it had a bizarre curvature to the block, which meant that it had materials that contracted at different rates while cooling. After breaking the block, we noticed a more gritty crystaline texture than the amorphous texture of beeswax, and finally, we chewed on a piece of it. We've chewed on a lot of beeswax and it was definitely not chewy but instead brittle. There's no way to know whether they were aware of it or not, but we guarantee to our customers that our candles are 100% beeswax so we can't take that chance.

    Default Lapp's sell individual frames of Honey Super Cell

    Lapp's is one of the only places where you can buy small quantities (less than a case) of Honey Super Cell.

    Simpson's is another...

    Default Re: Lapp's sell individual frames of Honey Super Cell

    Sadly, after many years they closed. The owners were getting up in years and turned the business over to the son. The apiary side took a series of tough hits. That is all I have heard.
