Most of us have purchased honey in one-pound plastic squeeze bottles from local beekeepers or farmers’ markets. Perhaps you did not know that there is a secondary and more valuable product collected during honey extraction, beeswax! Beekeepers take care to extract all the honey they can without destroying the comb that their bees need to rear new bees and to store nectar, pollen, and honey. Harvesting both honey and wax is a delicate balancing act for the beekeeper.
