How do bees use propolis inside the hive?

The bees use propolis to keep their nest water and draft proof by filling cracks, holes, gaps less than 6mm in width. They limit entrance size by filling the opening with propolis and often block any alternate entry openings. They also use propolis to seal or encapsulate anything they can not remove from a hive, be it mold, microbes, or small dead animals.
