Re: HELP! Wrong frames in brood box.
I have found this to be a great help in my hobby, and that's where the bee club comes into play. BTW: at the meetings everyone raises their hand to come help, but when the rubber hits the road, very few are actually willing or have the time. I have helped many, and have a few who are willing to come help me when needed.

Someone on here (Is it Rusty?) puts foundation in the middle of the frame and lets the bees build drone comb on the two sides to cut out mite filled drone comb.
You can do all that and move the smaller frames to the outside of the hive till the bees are no longer using it as brood comb, then move it up to a medium super. A little bit of work, but very manageable.
