Following removal of the propolis mat, the frames are smoked to drive bees down so the frames can be examined.
Honey surplus to the immediate requirements of brood raising is stored by the bees in the boxes above the brood chamber.
Sealed frames of honey can be removed by the beekeeper without disturbing the brood area. The box is then filled up with the correct number of empty frames so the bees can continue the good work.
