This is what happens when you put frames in without wiring, foundation, or anything else and forget to replace them in time. This empty frame should have went into broodnest, or at least between capped frames. Since the neighboring frame was being filled when the empty went in place, the bees simply drew out the comb double-wide in the original frame. After I cut the excess off this frame, it was good as new. I’ll return this to the hive to recap it.
Despite working in IT, I prefer spending my time outdoors. I enjoy beekeeping, hiking, camping, and about anything else I can do outside. A Do-It-Yourself’er, I’ve spent much of my life learning new skills like beekeeping, carpentry, mechanics, construction, and more. This gives a refreshing break from the days of screen time we all endure.
