Take your knife and cut it off, sit it outside and they will rob the honey out of it.

If you are running 10 frame boxes with 9 frames, take out the frame spacers, put ten frames in and push them up tight together. If you are wanting to run 9 frames in a 10 frame box you will have to wait until they pull the comb out.

Ditto on G3. There's too much space between your frames. I'd also put that frame on the outside with the mangled section facing out. I have found that once they start doing that to a frame they keep trying to do it again.

Too much bee space.   Push the frames together.    After cutting that mess loose.

That is one of the reason I like my plastic frames.  When some non conforming engineers make rows of bridge comb between frames being drawn, I just shake and smoke off the bees and take it back down to foundation and they draw it back out correctly for my purposes when I place them between the other drawn in the box.  If you wave was foundation or duragilt, it is hard to fix without destroying the comb.

Thanks guys.
All cleaned up and put back together.
I had a little brood  in one of the  frames but not much so i scraped it out it was part of a big peace of comb.
There just starting to draw out the top brood box like 2 and half frames so i 'll leave them alone for a couple weeks .
I have screen tops so i can see the top of the frames any time with out really making them mad .

The only time my bees have done that is when they were cramped and wanted to expand.  I shaved off the "condo-comb" and put on a foundationed box on top.  They took to it like gang-busters drawing out the foundation and filling it with nectar.  End of problem.
