Tuesday evening, Bob Binnie spoke at our Gwinnett County Beekeepers meeting. Bob’s a commercial beekeeper, who’s been in the business since 1981,
He and his wife own the Blue Ridge Honey Company. His talk was fun, informative, and interesting from start to finish. I came home from the meeting and went right to his website - www.blueridgehoneycompany.com .
On his FAQs page, I found all sorts of interesting tidbits that I’ll be sharing with you over the next few days.
Beeswax is used in candles and ornaments, lip balm, cosmetics and medicinal creams, as foundation for new honeycomb in bee hives, and in sewing to lubricate needles and thread. Beeswax keeps belts in vacuum cleaners, sewing machines and other tools from slipping. It is used to waterproof shoes, fish line and clotheslines, to lubricate doors, windows and tools, on skis, toboggans and bow strings, in furniture or floor polish, and so much more...
Are you using beeswax without knowing it?
BEEattitude for Day # 365:Blessed are those who share what they know and who listen when others share, for they shall all increase the wisdom of the hive.
p.s. from Fran: 365 days???? My gosh, have I really been blogging for an entire year?
