My first hive. I opened it last night to check it our before I leave town for about two weeks. There is brood comb between the top of the bottom box and the bottom of the top box. Brood in the comb with larvae in it. I scraped it out (angering my small hive). Was tgis the right move? How do I get them to keep the comb on the frames? Do I need to worry about it down in the brood boxes?

Are there pics somewhere of what larvae should look like? The ones I saw looked bigger than the bees and were still white and didn't look like they bees at all.

Newbie here. From what I understand...the bees use that as a ladder to go back n forth tween the top box and bottom box and it's okay to leave that. (of course you tear it up taking off the box but its there for them when the box goes back on. Cross comb is when you have comb on one frame and its attached one way or another to ANOTHER frame. Then you have to cut it away from one and try n make em keep the comb per frame.
