The waxy coating of Edam (fig.1) cheese is a protective layer against dehydratation and mould growth. Before solidification, however, it is a trap for foreign bodies, including insects. This illustration shows a damaged insect embedded in the waxy coating.  

Voskové balení sýra Edam (obr.1) je ochrannou vrstvou proti dehydrataci a růstu plísní. Před tím než ztuhne, bývá pastí na cizí předměty, jakož např. hmyz. Na tomto obrázku je možno vidět hmyz zalitý ve voskovém balení.
