099 – Propolis with Tara Chapman

This week the guys are joined by Tara Chapman of Two Hives Honey to discuss the uses of propolis.  Most beekeepers have a love-hate relationship with this dark sticky substance as it gets on everything and it does not ever seem to come back off.  Despite being a sticky pain for some beekeepers, hopefully we all realize the great importance that it plays in the lives of the bees and how it helps to create and maintain a healthy hive.  However, what can we as beekeepers do with this substance once we scrape a ball out of the hive during a routine inspection?  Well tune in now as Tara walks us through some of the wonderous possibilities that propolis can hold for an industrious beekeeper.
