Bad Comb development

860 3
Hello I have just started bee keeping. Today I peaked in a package i put in last week and the bees are making comb between the frames instead of on the foundation. should I just cut this now or give them some more time and then work on fixing a bigger mess but not have to worry as much about slowing the girls in their start.

It could be improper spacing or they could be desperate for drone comb. They will find a way to build drone comb no matter what you do. Ive seen them polish embossed wax foundation smooth and fill the entire frame with drone comb. Either way cut all that junk out before it becomes a mess.
