Bees Wax wheels: R40 each
Pure beeswax wheels can be used for making creams, natural balms and lotions.
We sell the beeswax wheels for R40 each for estimated 55g beeswax wheel.
We sell bulk beeswax for a minimum quantity of 5kg at a time for R225/kg. Orders for less than 5kg should order the wheels we have at set prices.
Beeswax sheets can also be used to roll beeswax candles. This is quite expensive and beeswax is extremely hard to come by let alone be used in a situation where it cannot be recyclable. Beekeepers are reluctant to have pure beeswax leave the industry for use as beeswax candles or otherwise.
If you collect then the price is as quoted.
Bee hives have been around for centuries in different shapes, designs and sizes. It wasn't until the Langstroth design that the bee hive actually became standardised. There are still many different types of bee hive in use across the world.
The mainstream beehive designs used in South Africa are the Langstroth beehive & Jackson Beehive. The Langstroth Bee hive hasn't been changed much since its first inception in the 1800s. Small changes have been made do incorporate aluminium covers, the type of weather protection used on the wood and the use of a queen excluder to prevent egg laying in the super chamber.
The bee hive made beekeeping manageable as before the advent of the bee hive, bee colonies would be raided for their golden liquid and usually the colony would be destroyed in the process. This created the need for a manageable method to keep bees, transport them and harvest honey from them without causing damage or destruction to the bee colony.
