Description:

red propolis is produced by cutting a long and thin opening at the bottom of the superhives wall (about 40x3cm) or by putting grids in between superhives for the bees to fill the holes with red propolis. The main botanical origin is a tree growing in mangroves that has a temporary immersion which scientific name is Dalbergia ecastophyllum. In the presence of a local parasite, the woody stems of this plant produce a resinous exudate with a bright red color, this exudate is collected by bees and mixed with salivary secretions and wax to be turned into red propolis.
