First up - I’m based in Australia (NSW, Katoomba).
I have only kept bees for 2 years, (this being my third summer now). I have just expanded my apiary to 2 hives My original is a Flow hive and my new one is a Langstroth. This is because I love it so much I wanted to have both versions to learn from.
This spring (3 months ago) I added a foundation less ideal super in-between my Flow Frame super and my Brood box in my original hive. It’s a strong colony. I did this because I was keen to experiment with honeycomb, and also with foundationless. I have only done a couple of inspections since installing and have now discovered there appears to be cross comb between every frame. (pics attached). The hive is level and the frames are together.
I was going to inspect the ideal today - but as I couldn’t even pull one out without feeling like I was ripping the comb, I needed to come back and do some research on the best approach from here. My thinking is a sharp knife and carefully slice between - separating each one as I go, and trying to straighten each one up.
Advice and recommendations very much appreciated.
