    The glue sticks work. We really don't know all the ingredients, though. They use polyethylene glycol and sodium stearate (and who knows what else). Both are allergens and irritants. Of course, plain old pine tree rosin is probably bad too and who knows what the hell those bees have been eating?:eek:
