I agree with the other posts. Full Langstroth boxes (vs. nucs) would be better for banded up brood frames.
Feed back the strained nector or honey from the combs you can't band (and have crushed). Treat for SHB (I use Bettle Blasters) as you go.
If you need help with that cut out, let me know. I have a few hives on Galveston Island. I also have a bee vac that we can use.
