Royal Jelly is a milky like substance created by the worker Bees. The Jelly is secreted from glands in the Bee’s head. It is known as Bees Milk (a bit like Colostrum from a cow). It is made for the nourishment of the Queen Bee. It is also fed in small quantities to all larvae in the colony during the first 2-3 days of their development.
The Bee’s collect resinous sap from trees and plants and bring back to the hive, where they combine it with their own secretions and form a glue-like mixture known as Propolis. The Bee’s use Propolis to protect the hive from infections and moisture lost.
