I have a wild hive in a box that I need to place in a lang hive. question is, does the comb have to stay orieinted the same way when it is put in the lang hive?
This hive was on a bush and it is pretty well matted together. I realize that I will not be able to save all of it.
Thanks, Robert

If it is oriented properly, the bees will incorporate it into the comb and re-use it.

If it is oriented wrong, the queen will not lay in it, so it can be removed when the brood emerges.

So it depends on if you want to remove it when the brood emerges, or if you want to leave it in the hive for them to use.
