Natural Comb on Board

When it is left up to the bees they create natural comb. Each female worker bee secretes up to eight pieces of "wax" from the underside of her body. She molds it with her mouthparts to make the beautiful hexagonal shape we associate with the beehive. This wax can later be used by beekeepers to make candles, medications and other items.
