Eating Honeybee Drone Brood.

I recently learned that in many countries, eating honeybee and wasp brood is common. I found a beautiful section of newly drawn and capped drone brood in a spacer on a hive I was working, so I decided today was the day to try it. My American friends think I’m crazy for doing this. They may be right, but you only live once. Wasp brood is next.

I keep honey bees in Reading, Bernville, and Fleetwood, PA without treatments. I love to garden and observe Wasps, Bumble bees, and ants. I also raise mealworms for my Eastern Spotted turtle and myself.

  1. Wonderful! And you are not wrong at all, quite adventurous actually! I’ve heard of dead drones in spring (after a deliberate colony purge only) as a coveted medicinal in Slavic regions. Also, in many old cultures they would use the wasp and other comb to age cheeses. :).
