I cut a big hive off of a tree limb and put the combs in a brood box. I took 5 frames with me, but there was so much comb, I ended up with only 2 in the box. I laid the comb in trying to stand it up, but it mostly slid down flat. I had one that was so big I couldn't fit it in the box, so I just laid it in the bed of my truck until I got it home. By the time I got home and set up the hive, it was getting dark. I went out the next morning and cut down the big comb and attached it to a frame with rubber-bands stretched around and looped to nails. I kept the entrance blocked on the bottom, laid down an excluder to keep the queen from swarming off before they settled in, and put the brood comb and the rest of the frames in another brooder above the excluder. I put the lid on slightly askew to allow the workers to come and go. Anything I didn't that I should have, or didn't that I should? Also, is it better to get the combs mounted in frames right away, or not disturb them for a few days to let them settle in?
I would have just shook be bees into a hive with frames ane put them in a feeder,lock them in a day and let them start over building new comb and all.
