Expense Of Renewing Combs

One important item should be considered in this matter, by those who

are so eager for new combs. It is doubtful whether one in 500 ever

thought of the expense of renewing comb. I find it estimated by one

writer,[2] that twenty-five lbs. of honey was consumed in elaborating

about half lb. wax. This without doubt is an over estimate, but no one

will deny that some is used.
