I've always been curious.  What do you do with the comb? Is it edible?  There isn't ever any bees, larva or eggs left in the comb, is there?  (sorry if that's a silly question, just always wondered if that happened or not.)



They use something called a queen excluder in the beehive so when they harvest it there's a section of the hive that the queen doesn't have access to so it doesn't get any of the eggs or larva or whatever else in there. Some farmers don't use those though but I don't know how they do it.

But it is yummy

That is good to know.  I always pictured myself biting one and there being a bee or something in it.  Lips sealed  I might try some next time I see any....might go to the farmer's market today, they usually have it there.
