Re: Caucasian Bees, a new project + propolis/wax recycling
Jcase, I have bees that recycle propolis also. I leave the scrapings on top of the hives and they get most of it. Last year they completely cleaned a qe that was sticky gooey covered in bee glue. These bees are all mutts, but I have a queen that is black like that and one of my nucs has a whole bunch of workers that are jet black also. Wierd looking, not even a hint of stripe. I will try to get pics and let you tell me what you think.
Thankfully, the bees are smarter than I am. They are doing well, in spite of my efforts to help them.
