“The Buzz Quiz” – How long can honey last? (shelf life)

The second product of bees is bee wax. Bee wax or beeswax is a natural secretion from wax glands on the sides of the body of honey bees and is used primarily as a building block for the bees’ honeycomb. The honeycomb cells are where the young are raised and honey and pollen are stored. Beeswax is found in many products we use such as skin care products, candles and furniture polish.
At the time of this writing, the Lakeview United Methodist Men have donated 16 hives of bees with your generous donations. Now that’s a lot of “buzz”! Thank you so very much for helping the poor and hungry. In Isaiah 58:10 we read;
“Feed the hungry, and help those in trouble. Then your light will shine out from the darkness and the darkness around you will be bright as noon.”
