Re: Fill the trap with frames!
I put in a bait frame and one of foundation and had the exact same result (twice this year alone) but have not found it to be too difficult to cut out. I was set up for a different cut out though and had frames with large rubber bands on them already. I lifted out the lid, put the frames in the new deep, took my hive tool and shaved along the base of the comb and slid it into the rubber band and added a second. The other frame I ended up with several smaller combs that needed rubber bands on the short dimensions as well. I do not think I was at it 10 minutes.
