Bees building comb under frames.

Due to a bad design choice/oversight, there is a 1-1.5" "space" between the frames and the screened bottom board. Seems my new bees are building crosscomb in this space, across the bottoms of the frames.

To fix, I'd have to remove the deep super, and make a quick modification to the bottom board, and then scrape all of the crosscomb off (which probably contains brood).

Or, I can leave it in place and deal with it later.

i noted a lot of bur comb being built on the bottom of my deep which usually stays on the bottom ontop of the entrance board.

I was told "they have to make drone comb someplace"

Ive left it untill this spring when i rotated my deep which was empty. I assume they will rebuild it as they see fit.

i dont know that it hurts anything....
