As you know, propolis is a resin substance elaborated by bees to seal, fix or for hygienic of the beehive. If they find slits usually will try to refill them. As cement in a house, a strong glue. However, we are reusing the propolis for good healthy utilities.
"GLUED FRAMES DUE TO PROPOLIS"
Sometimes the frames stay sticked very strong due to propolis gets glue on wood, plastic, metal and even crystal or vitreo.
DO WE COMMIT TOGETHER ?
"Rookie, Amateur or beekeeper professional always at the forefront? If you check from time to time your beehives, if you put the apropriate utensil to collect propolis with no impuryties, if you don't leave little slots, cracks or holes inside the beehive and from new year 2017, little by little, you start to use these Nonstick Protector Solutions, I promise you will see, how your labour productivity increases and will gain more money. Further more, your bees will be a little happier, every time that you go to open their rented houses ;-) "

Depending on humidity, vegetation density, geography, etc. bees will put more or less quantity in an artificial beehive, even in Urban Beekeeping. But if you prepare their houses with holes or slots much more ;-)
Long time ago we have been using metal runners, spacers or plastic ends inside of beehives and now we have a Non-Stick and Eco-Friendly solution to try them on as alternative market. In any case, propolis is good and multipurpose product but whether we want to reuse this substance with high quality and at the same time to handle the frames easier and with less disturbance, HolycomB suggests how do we can do it a little better.
HolycomB’s commitment to beekeeping is to make use of all
innovations in Food Grade Silicone. This means that, although
the prices are higher than other standard ones,
it’s a very high quality silicone, ensuring the
health and wellbeing of the bees. It’s the same silicone
used for baking and in baby’s pacifiers or nipples
on baby bottles. It is NON-TOXIC and more
ECO-FRIENDLY than other materials used
inside the hive.
It will not warp or become deformed and can
withstand extreme temperature changes. It is very
durable and can last well over 10 years with proper and
normal use. It will not corrode and can with stand Oxalic Acid
and other chemicals used to care for the hive.
The design and materials used make it absolutely NON-STICK for propolis and other substances from the hive. You can confirm this right now at home with any kitchen utensil you have that is made of Food Grade Silicone. Try to stick something to the surface with the strongest glue you know of, or heat a little propolis and rub it on with your finger; immediately, you’ll see that it will even stick to glass, but not to our material.
