Two top bar hives - one lang - first year. One top bar hive has creative (and persistent) bees. Last week, through the window, I saw a comb on the floor and up a inch or two on the side. It was under a brood comb and two honeycombs. I went it, unattached it and hung it from a top bar with a hair clip. They've spent the week attaching it to the top bar and building it out. Going to be another honeycomb. This morning, another comb on the floor - not in the same place. In 24 hours they built a comb - it's about half full of nectar and some of that is capped. What is going on? Why are they doing this? They get pretty protective/upset/downright mad that I don't appreciate their construction - and I'm rather frustrated.
Why are building comb horizontally?
