    Are you using foundationless frames. If so new comb is very fragile and breaks easily, keep it perpendicular to the ground and treat it very carefully.

    Handle all frames carefully. Uncapped brood falls out easily and doesn't recover if placed back in the frame usually

    "No i am using plactic foundation couted with beeswax. IT was atached to the fram But not the foundation."

    Wanky comb like that is usually the result of bad bee space. Pull it off and make sure the frames are tight to each other.

    that works. I try to have some plain wooden frames with a wedge, I use them for cutouts and removals but also when I have some burr comb with valuable stuff in it that I want to put in a hive.
