- comb that the bees drew out, filled with honey, and capped with a thin cap of wax,
- comb after uncapping, oozing with honey (here’s a video of uncapping),
- comb after extraction (see video). Extraction is never total: there is always lots of honey left, more or less depending on the viscosity of the honey and the determination of the robbers (us),
- so you give the extracted frames back to the colony for “cleaning.” Is that clean or what!? The bees are excellent cleaners!
