Technology has moved on since then, but interestingly, not on the beekeeping front. Even today, Langstroth hives are still manufactured using the same materials and basic design developed 162 years ago.

Happily, this looks set to change. Enter the BeePak, a locally developed composite beehive with the potential to take the apiculture world by storm. Chances are it didn’t cross your mind last time you spread some delicious honey over your morning toast, but bees are very big business – their pollination activity is responsible for up to one in every three mouthfuls of food we eat.

Honey, Propolis, and Royal Jelly: A Comprehensive Review of Their Biological Actions and Health Benefits

By Andre`

Apiculture is the science and art of prolonging, sustaining, and retaining health by using products obtained from honeybee hives, such as honey, bee bread, bee venom, bee pollen, propolis, and royal jelly. Recent years have seen the fast application of bee products in both traditional and modern medicine. Currently, many studies are targeted toward investigating directed health benefits and pharmacological properties of bee products due to their efficacies, leading to the increasing development of nutraceuticals and functional food from these products. The concept of functional food refers to food that has the ability to promote better physiological or psychological health compared to traditional remediated and nutritional food. These effects positively contribute toward excellent health maintenance, well-being, and reduced chronic illness
