I got a hive this past fall late in the season, to late I felt to pop it open and break the seals the bees had made to winterize the hive and didn't have a bee suit anyways and spanking new to this so wasn't about to try with out one. Yesterday I finally got all my bee supplies I'd saved up for, got my medium super together and painted, frames built ready to go so suit up smoke up and unsure of myself and anxiously poped it open and it had comb everywhere. On the lid on top af the frames in between the frames they had it just gummed up. I spent the next probably 15 min scraping the lid clean and clearing out in between the frames the honey comb. The frames was as you can imagine just gummed all up. I was afraid to start prying and trying to pull them out as this being my only hive would kill the queen in the process so just cleaned top best I could and stuck my excluder on and the medium super and left it. Any advice? Anybody else ever been in this situation? Figure I'd check out here next weekend to see how it doing. I don't think previous owner messed with it any for it to be in this condition. It looked like nothing I'd seen on any YouTube video.
