I caught a swarm about 3 weeks ago and made to feed them heavily since we are in somewhat of a dearth right now. When I went to open up the hive today and checked on them, I noticed that they were aggressive. I soon realized that they were building comb on the top cover and apparently one of the frames shifted enough to allow them to do it. With the feeding I noticed that the queen was laying so I cant just scrape it out and throw it away. Is there an easy way to remove this before it gets to out of hand? How would I secure it to another frame or is there another better method for this? Any help is appreciated.

You can rubber band it to the inside of an empty frame, no foundation. Masking tape works well also. Secure it in at lest 3 places. If it doesn't reach from the top to the bottom, use the bottom as your attachment. The bees will attach to the bottom as well. Next year just remove it in the spring when it's empty,
