Propolis is a very promising product with a very good price, which may contribute to your income without requiring much effort or time. The propolis collection screens are placed on the hive top floor, below the cover. There should be some space left above the propolis collection screen so that air current is generated from which the bees will try to protect themselves by filling the screen with propolis. To keep the required gap you can use the two spacers attached to the side of the screen. Propolis can be extracted from the screens after you place it in the freezer for 5 minutes and then shake or rub propolis with a piece of wood or your hand. The screen can collect up to 400g of propolis within 10-15 days depending on the fauna and the time of year. Usually applied in spring and autumn.
