Caption

Worker honeybees, Apis mellifera overseeing the brood chambers, which are capped with wax once pupation sets in. The brood chambers are similar in construction to the honey chambers; a frame with hexagonal wax foundations upon which the bee builds. The top section of the hive which contains the honey chambers is separated by the queen excluder, sometimes made of gauze, from the brood chambers in the bottom. The eggs & larvae are tended by the workers (one large drone visible left). At the onset of pupation the workers cap the chambers with wax as seen here.
