I have some comb that overwintered in an unheated space and the wax is fairly brittle. Is this brittleness reversible? A couple of the good newly drawn combs have cracked in the center - wondering whether the bees will repair this if put in a super for honey storage.

They will.
Sleep well.
I get your gentle jab and implication that I'm worrying too much. Laughing at self emoji. Chuckle. But seriously, have you experienced cracked comb being repaired? Or is it a conjecture?

Not just a cracked comb - much worse.

Don't worry about it.

I'll give it a try. If they don't fix it, it will either sit unused or will be like a flow hive comb with the lever turned. haha. (Disclaimer: I've never used and will never use flow hives.) :)
