Welcome to the forum.
First, you did not say if the q cells were used or not (if used late, the first emerging queen will kill her sisters and the workers remove the body, The new queen may not have mated thus leading to the demise of the colony.) Either way I would remove the queen cells, if the bees want to re queen they can rebuild new queen cells fast enough.
As for the sign wave, you did not say what frequency it was
(a little electronic humor.)
My uncle had this problem. He would either melt it down (if there was to much of it) or he would press it (gently) between his hands to straighten it out then wire it in place for the bees. It worked for him. I use frames with foundation, so I have not had to do it myself. Good luck -Mike
