10 Frame Propolis Trap Mat
Propolis traps are a perfect way to harvest clean propolis from your hive. Propolis is the red or brown resinous sticky substance made by bees to seal up cracks and spaces in their hives. Many beekeepers collect and sell Propolis which can be used in a variety of natural remedies.
To use, replace your inner cover or hive mat with the plastic propolis collector. The bees will fill the grooves of the trap with propolis. For best results, prop open your outer cover to allow some light into the hive. The bees will propolise the trap to shut out the light.
To collect the propolis, simply remove the trap and put it inside a plastic bag and freeze overnight. Twist or bang the trap inside the bag to remove the propolis.
Made from high quality, flexible food grade plastic, these propolis traps will last for years of service.
The propolis mat is 10 frame size - dimensions 500mm (L) x 405mm (W)
Note the trap can be used in an 8 frame hive by cutting to size.
