The War On Honey Bees

The War On Honey Bees

  This is a brief rundown of the observances of recent bee activity in the foothills of the Catskills mountains.  Many factors threaten the survival of honey bees, but yellow jackets are a huge threat in our micro biosphere.      Yellow Jackets, particularly in many Northeastern United States cases, Vespula Germanica* (a relatively new species in North America) are aggressive wasps that will attack and destroy honey bee hives (especially small/weak ones).  Ideal conditions for this occur in late summer and early fall when wasp populations run at their highest,  just as droughts set in; more wasps/less food.  Vegetation becomes more scarce and...

Our Current Beekeeper Map

Here is a current Beekeeper map showing our last 3 wax purchases.  We are working with beekeepers whom we feel produce the purest, most refined wax for making a smooth lip balm. These points indicate general areas of the keepers (located in Sullivan and Ulster Counties).   The general area of the three towns where the bees are located are Grahamsville, Woodstock and Big Indian.  As you can see, the bee hives are generally located within the 700,000 acre park.  Try our unscented beeswax lip balm today in single or 5 pack with free shipping.

Clorox Owns Burt's Bees?

   Yes, that fun looking product branded as being made by an old beekeeper from Maine is now owned by a multi-billion dollar chemical company.  Burt Shavitz was a true naturist.  Born in New York City, he eventually decided to move to Upstate New York where he became a beekeeper.  Much like our story, vastly preferring the tranquility of the mountains to city life.  As big fans of Burt's life story, we are very happy with the fact that the bees who provide us with our Catskills Gold Lip Balm beeswax are direct descendants of the same honey bees Burt became a...

Beeswax For Lips

   While Life, Not Labs has only been around for a few years we can safely say that all of our ingredients are millions of years old and have been used purposefully for just as long.  Beeswax is a very popular moisturizing lip balm compound; it contains natural emulsifiers which also help retain moisture making them helpful for dry or chapped lips.  According to the Mayo Clinic it is one of the best ways to prevent chapping and heal damaged lips.  This is the ingredient selected for our product with a primary purpose of locking in moisture.     It even assists in protecting skin from...
