I recently obtained a 4 frame nuc. The 4 frames were placed in the center of a new hive body (deep) with 3 new frames of wax foundation on either side. Eight days later I inspected the hive. The 4 center frames (from the nuc) have comb extending past the edge of the frames into the neighboring frames. It's like one solid mass of comb through all the nuc frames. I removed frame 10 (untouched by the bees) and spaced the remaining 9 out with the result that I broke comb which spanned the nuc frames. Whats is going on here and did I do the right thing? It looks like a mess in those 4 frames. Please help a noob. :?
