We all know that when constructing comb, the bees 'cant' the comb slightly upward on both sides (I'll guess ~10 degrees?), making the two sides of comb form a slight 'V.'
When doing an extraction from inside a wall, we all know the comb runs up and down inside the wall forming vertical strips, about 3.5" - 4" wide. As I cut comb out and use rubber bands to capture and hold the comb in a Langstroth frame, rather than have only two short vertical strips of comb partially filling in the width of the frame, can I rotate the comb 90 degrees and put the strips in lengthwise, and save a lot of time and effort and more efficiently put the comb in the hive?
I understand that liquid honey would more easily run out the comb, but all I really care about for the time being is whether the brood will survive this.
