Hi--Guess I was not clear enough. The comb fell when I tried to pull out the bar for inspection. I think it was nudged into the next comb's space because it had been built off the edge of the bar rather than the comb guide. So, 2 combs on 1 bar, 1 fallen accidentally. I will gradually work on cleaning up their mess as I spend more time in the hive and get more comfortable with working with them. For now, they have been having a bit of a free-for-all!
My entrance is on one end, jar feeder behind a follower board (with slit to make room for feeder entrance) on the other end. The bees have been hanging right next to the feeder.
On my last inspection, I moved the feeder further back and added 4 bars to make room on that side of the nest. My question is, Should I try to move the entire brood nest to the front (entrance) of the hive? Would this somehow help them in honey storage, or will they just store on either side of the nest? Will it help keep the queen on one end and not laying all over the place?
BTW, I did NOT find queens in either hive or eggs. But, it was my first inspection and I had no experienced beek to help. I can say that both hives are using syrup quickly, building an impressive amount of comb and packing it with nectar/syrup and pollen.
