In Ancient Times, How Did The Candles Come About?


The candles used today are generally paraffin wax, soy wax and beeswax. In fact, there is a natural candle: insect wax.


In ancient times, there was no electricity and no paraffin. People discovered a bug that parasitized on the trunk and coarse branches of a tree. This kind of worm was called [white wax insect". This tree was also named [The ash tree". This is a specialty of China. China's stocking of wax insects began in the ninth century. Song and Yuan have already been correctly documented. Until the time of Ming Dynasty, Dasheng, Sichuan, Fujian, Huguang, Jiangsu, and Zhejiang had aquaculture. It is a scale insect in insects, male and female. After the female matures, the camp fixes life; males have a pair of wings, but their lives are short and they are not easily found in the wild. The secretion of wax mainly depends on the beetle larvae. The first-instar female larvae do not secrete wax; the second-instar female larvae can secrete trace wax powder. One-year-old male larvae can secrete trace waxes, and white waxworms produce wax mainly from second-instar male larvae.


The parasitoid was parasitized on the surface of the tree, and it was lumped into a piece. The sap was eaten and the wax was secreted. At the time of the harvest, the stalks were cut and heated slightly, and the wax was separated.
