I know this question has been asked many times,but I'm not sure what to do.
When inspecting my top bar hive I find that when I try to seperate the top bars from each other the bees have built the comb straight, but some has been connected to the comb on the next bar over. Last night I brought a knife with me and as I seperated the bars I took the knife and sliced down to seperate the two combs. This is in the brood area of the hive.Should I just leave them alone? Am I wasting my time trying to seperate the comb?Should I be doing this where they have brood? It seems to be about 1-3 inches of attached comb,not the whole comb attached to the next one over.
