I kept a super of honey in the freezer over the winter in case any of my hives needed it. None did so I put it outside- at a distance from the apiary - to let the bees clean it out yesterday to free up the super for use. (It was pungent goldenrod honey, so didn't bottle it.) They did clean it out, but also tore up the comb pretty good. I noticed the comb seems a little brittle, probably from being in the freezer.

1. Would it be best to scrape this comb off and use the foundation or put in hives as-is and hope they repair it?
2. Would there have been a smarter way for me to do this whole thing? Trying to learn. ;-)

Thank you in advance for any advice.

(4th year beek, 7 hives)
