It has been mentioned what happens when you forget to include the proper quantity of frames in supers added to hives.

Earlier this season I was adding supers and overlooked including the proper amount of frames in one. Later when I went to harvest honey I got this surprise:

Usually if you only leave out one you get one nice comb that isn't attached to a frame.  Smiley  I usually scrap the nice ones if they are honey or tie them in a frame if they are brood.

Usuually if you leave out two, you get the kind of mess you have.
