Sorry BB - I should have been clearer.

What I was talking about was the residue left by pupae when they emerge from cells. They do make an effort to clean up behind them, but it is less than thorough.

Also, the propolis cell lining causes discolouration of the comb, and may taint the honey if left there for an extended period of time.
