A bee comb has six sides,

on each a magic thing it hides:

Take wax, pollen and a spoon of honey

and you will be healthy and sunny

Try propolis, royal jelly, venom

and you'll enjoy bee's poem.


WELCOME

on the Bee Hexagon, the personal website of the bee product scientist Stefan Bogdanov.

I had the privilege to work for 26 years with these products, mainly on honey, at the Swiss Bee Research Centre, www.apis.admin.ch

The bees have chosen the hexagon as a building cell for their combs. One reason is that it is especially economic in regard to expenditure of energy and material and has a maximal strength, able to store heavy honey in it: a comb of 100 g weight can hold in it up to 4 kg of honey!

And may be also, because the bees want to show us, that they offer us six magic products: honey, pollen, royal jelly, propolis, beeswax and bee venom.

I would like to offer here some fascinating and useful facts on the “six magic things”.

This website is updated regularly, as many fascinating facts about the bee products remain to be discovered
