A frame from a bee hive. The cells are covered by wax ("capping"), which is scraped off before it is "slung" out in an extractor.

The honey-making room. The extractor is the steel cylinder in the far left corner. The extractor works as a centrifuge and since it doesn't destroy the cells in the frames, they can be re-used by the bees.
