Beeswax

Eva Crane

International Bee Research Association

Beeswax is secreted by workers of most Apidae, which use it to build combs of cells in their nests, for rearing brood, and for storing food. Workers are female members of a colony of bees, active in foraging or nesting, but laying no eggs or only a few compared with a queen. The term "beeswax" is commonly used for the wax from honey bees (Apis), especially that from A. mellifera, which is the basis of the world's beeswax industry.
