Ok, my bees survived the winter. I have all kinds of cross comb on the bars. I left them last year because winter was coming. Do I try and straighten them out now by removing the comb and all? Basically starting over this spring by removing about half of the comb? Or do I try to reattach comb using clips for half the hive?

My thinking is that I should just leave the one end where most of the brood was last year (it was all cross combed too.) as not to disturb them too much.

If I do remove the old comb, can I use the comb for wax?
