Okay, I did it but I must admit I was really scared. I opened up the hive and started examining what you had told me to do. There were soooo many bees on that comb. Remember this is only my second day at this. I am thinking to myself cut this in half. Well the bees where not very happy with my project and I lost some larva but I compeleted my task. My kids 5, 6, 10 where off at a distance watching and after some really tense moments the 5, 10 year old girls decided to bail. My son who is 6 called out "mom I am still here." That is my bug loving boy! Well I guess I will check on the hive in a couple of days to see if the bees have started taking interest in the new stuff. Thanks for you advice hope all goes well.
