Propolis is gaining popularity and is becoming a money maker for many beekeepers. Consider producing this product and developing a retail market for it. Put this trap on in place of the inner cover. Prop your tops up to let in the light and the bees will propolize the trap to shut the light out. Put the trap in a bag and put it in the freezer. Take the bag out once frozen and bang it on the floor and the propolis will fall off. Should you not be able to develop local markets you can sell propolis to Beehive Botanicals at 1-800-283-4274.
