    As an "aside" note, I would add that I have seen bees "recycle" propolis. Hive equipment left in the open,with spots of propolis attached, are visited by field bees that clean it off as they collect the propolis and bring it back to the hive to be used again. I have particularly noticed the bees working on cleaning propolis from queen excluders.
