Fix the comb ASAP.
I think I've browsed that one a bit but I'll take another look. I guess I should have been more specific with my question. Does the need to fix the comb now outweigh the risk of irritating the hive to make the repairs? I'm assuming if I'm quick and don't cause too much of a ruckus I won't disturb them much but I just want make sure I'm not being a perfectionist but at the same time I don't want to have a huge mess on my hands in a week. =)After fixing the comb let them be for a while and feed them....watch the hive entrance to familiarize yourself with their behaviors. There is a book you can download for free (about 90 pages or so) by H. Storch named "At the Hive Entrance". It's great....written a long time ago but well worth having in your library....Deb
