When working in the hives I have been cutting off drone cells that are hanging from the bottom of the frames. It seems wasteful even though they are in the way. Is this right? They are usually full of larvae and the bees get pretty po'd about it. Thanks.

The bees will just waste resources making more until they finally get the amount of drones they want, which they will get no matter what you do. It's just a matter of the amount of resources it takes to do it when you keep interfering.
