So I just wanted to get some input on what people do when they have some honey comb break. How do you the bees off the comb to fix it? I just used smoke, smoke and more smoke. Didn't know if someone had any better ideas. BTW I used rubber bands to hold the comb in the frames. Also, I've never had any comb break before but knew something was up when I listened to the hive from outside it sounded kind of like the snap crackle pop cereal. I'm guess that is the sound of bees robbing out the comb? Thanks for any advice.
It all depends on what kind of comb and where it is. I brush the bees off. if the comb is empty rubber banding is no problem. if brood I band no mater what, a dozen bands if needed. If honey comb Its a snack.
