Bee Products

Honey and beeswax are the main bee products used by humans. Bee brood has been eaten by humans since ancient times in some Asian countries, but until the 1900s only honey and beeswax were produced commercially. Then in the 1950s the price of honey on the world market was depressed by surplus production, and beekeepers in certain technologically advanced countries, seeking ways of diversifying the sources of income from their bees, explored the commercialization of royal jelly, bee venom, pollen, and propolis.
