I just got my first package of bees a week ago and installed them in my box-hive. In order to do so I took out four frames from the top box. Today I went for my first inspection and found they had made their comb in the empty space attached to the inner lid. Without thinking too much about it, I removed the comb and replaced the missing frames. I took the comb away from the hive, washed it off, and put it in my shed.
I realize now that I probably should have asked someone before I did this. I feel as if I may have hurt my hive significantly by doing this. If someone could tell me if I did the right thing or not, it would be greatly appreciated.
