Fresh wax is valuable
Real, unadulterated beeswax is a highly valued commodity. Traditionally beekeepers value ready-built honeycomb and use it for as along as possible. Normally, beekeepers give empty honey comb to the bees to fill up again after extracting the honey. This saves the bees a lot of work and notably increases the honey harvest, because the bees need a lot of nectar to create new wax.
At Luonnon KULTA, we let the bees build fresh wax every year, and we do not re-use old honeycomb. Not only does this make the honey better, but it also keeps our bees healthier. Therefore we do not need to use any pharmaceuticals in out hives.
