Re: Foundationless mess, how do I fix?
That is some great looking comb! Awesome! Here is what I do when mine get drawn out too far. Get a spray bottle with some syrup in it. Take the frame out of the hive and spray the bees with some syrup, careful not to much!, you don't want to drown them. This will keep them busy cleaning up the mess you just made for them and they wont be flying all over the place. Now, gently sweep the bees back into the hive. Once the frame is clean of bees I take it inside away from the hive and shave off the protruding comb into a bowl, yummy. After I wipe off some of the oozing honey with a rubber spatula I return the frame to where it belongs and the bees clean up that mess and generally cap the honey. Sometimes they'll draw it out again but for the most part they draw the frame next to it a little faster and move the excess honey to the frame. At least that's what I've observed with my hives. Good luck!
