So this entire "healthy propolis" talk is another new shiny thing the scientists came up with (to justify the funding I guess OR maybe to change the topic).
The science can not save the bees anyway it appears, the science best to just step away and let the things just happen naturally.
Propolis will not save the crappy bees.
Good bees need no propolis to save them.
