    Default Royal Jelly

    Royal jelly is made by nurse bees mixing pollen with a secretion that comes from their head to feed to the larvae for a couple days or a new queen for an entire term... My question.. Is there a way to harvest royal jelly??

    Sure is...Probably more than one way.
    The way I do it, on a small scale of course, is to get the Q Cells before they are fully capped, remove the larva and with a plastic syringe 10-12 cc capacity that has a curved, plastic tip used for flushing between teeth( your dentist has them...or medical supplies stores), draw the royal jelly.
    I draw the royal jelly and store it in the fridge with the syringe. Some samples are thicker than others, but it works.
    I assume that if one does a lot of it, you could use one of those medical fluid/secretions removal pumps. I might also get one.
