Hive body and supers
The main parts of the hive (the hive body and the super) are filled with wooden frames acting as supports for the activities of the bees. The body of the hive constitutes living quarters for the colony of 50 to 60,000 workers. There, the queen lays her eggs in the frames that support the alveoli, and the workers store pollen and honey for food. As for the frames of the smaller supers that surmount the hive's body, they are taken by the beekeeper during harvest to extract the honey they contain.
