So I broke into the hive to do the spring inspection this afternoon. The hive I inspected is just starting its second year and is really strong--bees on almost every frame of two deep boxes and the honey super I left on over the winter. So, when I was removing frames from the top deep box to look at them there was comb that was attached to the box below it that I didnt see until after I removed the frames. When I removed the frames the comb broke and larva spilled out--in one instance some white brood spilled out. Now, what has me a bit worried is that a couple of these attached comb areas looked a little more bulbous than normal comb and I am worried that the hive is about the swam and I killed the new queen cell. Did I just mess things up on a colony that is about to swarm or am I worrying about nothing. Anyway--lots of brood and food in there but this attached comb issue has me a bit worried. I went ahead and reversed the boxes while I was in there as the bottom box had a tiny amount of capped brood but mostly honey and pollen. Anyway--thanks for the information--I appreciate it.
