My bees have been in the hive for 11 days. The comb in most every hive is getting laid perpendicular to the frame in long columns. The space between the frames is getting filled with comb. When you pull out a frame the two frames need to be pried apart and the the comb just barely hangs on at the top of the frame. The comb is not getting attached to the imprinted comb on the plastic. The plastic combs were coated with beeswax and I sprayed them with sugar water before I installed the bees. What do I do now? The hives are also level.

Thanks for your quick response. If I cut out the abnormal comb should I leave the comb on top of the hive for the bees to recycle? The brood frames are just plastic frames purchased from Mann. The frames came already waxed. I didn't add additional wax. When I start to put on honey supers I did purchase Duraglit. Unfortunately, a whole case of Duraglit. I hope that I'm not going to continue having this problem all summer.
