Caption: Bee keeper using a smoker to passify honeybees, Apis mellifera, before removing the honey from the hive. A smoker creates smoke by burning corrugated cardboard. It is ventilated by a small pair of bellows on the handle. The domesticated bee is given a frame with hexagonal foundations, several such frames slotted into a box like this to form a hive. The foundations are built up into chambers from wax secreted by the bee, filled with honey & capped again with wax. The keeper removes the frames in late summer to prevent the bees feeding on the honey over winter. He replaces it with syrup.
