Stingless bees are indigenous pollinators of treasured herbal plants. Propolis of stingless bees is a natural, strongly adhesive mixture made of bee secretions and plant resins. Stingless bee Propolis exhibit a wide spectrum of pharmacological activities that vary depending on the geographical location, climate, generic type of bees and availability of botanical sources for the bees to forage.
