Honey bees produce a natural beeswax secreting it from glands on the sides of their bodies. They then scrape the wax off,chew it up and secrete it to the inside of the honeycomb. There, it gradually hardens into a protective lining for the cells where the baby bees are grown and the honey is stored. Honey bees use the beeswax to build honeycomb cells in which their young are raised with honey and pollen cells being capped for storage. This hardened material not only serves as a physical protection, but also helps keep the hive free of infections and other contaminants.
