HONEY SPRING Honeycomb

A honeycomb is a mass of hexagonal wax cells built by honey bees in their nests to contain their larvae
and stores of honey and pollen.

Beekeepers may remove the entire honeycomb to harvest honey. Honey bees consume about 4kg of honey
to secrete 500g of wax, so it makes economic sense to return the wax to the hive after harvesting the honey, commonly called "pulling honey" or "robbing the bees" by beekeepers. The structure of the comb may be
left basically intact when honey is extracted from it by uncapping and spinning in a centrifugal machine-the
honey extractor. If the honeycomb is too worn out, the wax can be reused in a number of ways, including
making sheets of comb foundation with hexagonal pattern. Such foundation sheets allow the bees to build
the comb with less effort, and the hexagonal pattern of worker-sized cell bases discourages the bees from building the larger drone cells.

Why is honey comb so unique?
Honeycomb contains more nutrition then honey, because you eat the honey with the comb. The benefits of Honeycomb are many: natural raw honey, beeswax and Propolis. The taste of the honeycomb is sweet,
honey flavour and for long-term using of honeycomb it is good for you health.
