Has anybody tried using this for fertilizer? I have access to a bunch of it and was thinking about making compost from some

Ive seen people take dead out bee colonies and compost them. Honey is bee vomit, not sure if thats any better.

You could compost it, soil test the results, and let us know how it goes :-)

dead bees are excellent fertilizer... old combs can be acidic? but could be good

maybe what you are talking about is what we call slum-gum... Should be very good fert. Might be a bit acidic.

Its what is left over after wax is rendered out of the combs... The heating may remove some nitrogen but other than that, and the acidity, it should be good. I have monkeyed with it but there is still a lot I dont know.
