Life in the Hive infographic - Bees and their lifecycle

Here at Herstat, we are big fans of the humble honeybee - the little creatures work tirelessly to make honey and keep their hive clean and sanitary using propolis.

We use propolis, carefully processed of course to remove impurities, in our cold sore remedy because it has the following proven properties:

  • antiviral
  • antibacterial
  • anti-inflammatory
  • anaesthetic
  • regenerative (wound healing)

Colony facts

Bees are hard workers; if you've ever watched one of the furry little insects gathering pollen from the hollyhocks in your garden then you'll know that they seem to be pretty tenacious in their quest for the yellow stuff.

But, have you ever wondered how old a bee is when it starts gathering pollen, or whether drone bees live a long and happy life? If your answer is yes, then we have the infographic to answer your queries.
