Propolis, or bee glue is a substance produced by honey bees. Collected by bees from the tip of young leaves and then mixed with saliva, are used for patching and sterilize the hive. Propolis is a disinfectant (anti bacterial) that kills all the germs that enter the hive. covering the nest with bee propolis to protect all who are in the nest is from the invasion of germs, viruses, or bacteria.

Propolis is now believed to:

  • reinforce the structural stability of the hive;
  • reduce vibration;
  • make the hive more defensible by sealing alternate entrances;
  • prevent diseases and parasites from entering the hive, and to inhibit fungal and bacterial growth;[3]
  • prevent putrefaction within the hive. Bees usually carry waste out of and away from the hive. However, if a small lizard or mouse, for example, finds its way into the hive and dies there, bees may be unable to carry it out through the hive entrance. In that case, they would attempt instead to seal the carcass in propolis, essentially mummifying it and making it odorless and harmless.
