Strange, I never (keeping in mind my limited experience) had it. In my situation, it is more likely to have comb attached to the sides but not to the bottom. I wonder how often you inspect your hives? In my hands, it took at least month (more!) for bees to start attaching comb to the sides. Of coarse, TB approach is needed when "frameless frames" used - carefully cut comb if anchored before removing the frame. Sergey
