Bees wax is a wonderful substance that honey bees produce from 8 glads on their abdomens. It is secreted as a clear liquid which quickly solidifies on contact to the air. The platelets of wax are passed up in to the bees mouth and then chewed. Bees wax is used by honeybees to produce honeycomb where they store honey, pollen and raise brood.
