    Moved the hive two days ago to my fathers land. Bees seemed a little confused for awhile, just flying around the hive in a 15ft radius. It seems they are now going out looking for nectar/pollen. I...

    Yes, I have both plastic and wax foundations. Looks like just the plastic foundations are tied together. Yes, the bad comb is attaching from one foundation to the other in a 5" strip going...

    thanks
