These raw and unprocessed chunks of propolis have been harvested from a specially-designed polypropylene trap that allows for the extraction of cleaner surplus propolis. Placed just under the outermost cover of the hive, the propolis trap encourages the bees to fill the open grooves with propolis to close up the gaps. This sustainable method of extraction does not necessitate removing any substances from within the inhabited confines of the hive, thus leaving the hive propolis intact. Moreover, propolis collected from a designated trap contains fewer contaminants, such as bits of wax, wood, and dead bee parts, than propolis harvested from internal hive scrapings.
While the typical peak time of propolis production on the mainland USA is in the autumn, Hawaii's tropical weather allows for almost year-round propolis production and harvesting.
