It comes to us directly from our friends the bees, indeed they recover this resin from many plants, conifers with the bark of firs, pines, as well as the buds of many species of trees such as alders, willows. , birch and plum, ash and oak, elm, poplar and horse chestnut. This resin, having a more or less viscous appearance, is used to coat the inside of the hive or to reduce the entrance to protect the colony.
