Hybrid flow, bees making comb between flow and empty frame

Hi. I’m new to bee keeping. I have put on my super. We have 3 flow frames in the middle and 4 empty frames - 2 either side.
The bees are making comb between the flow frame and empty frame. Has anyone had this problem.

Hi Susy, welcome to the forum.
I’ve found using a strip of wax foundation opposed to the wooden strip encourages the bees to build comb where we want it.
It’s best to remove the comb if it’s not conforming early and perhaps try rubber banding the built comb into an empty frame and make sure the wooden frames are as close to the Flow frames as the frame rests allow until they are built out.
