      Luckily my bees are all behaving and the comb they are building is right
      on the bars so far. All my entrances face south, not sure if that means
      anything to bees or if that's just us two-leggeds looking for reasons
      for things.

      But Michael Bush's suggestion is just what you did - put new bars
      between straight bars and they seem to do okay at that point.

      I'm curious as to what your top bars look like - do you have a guide
      line, or guide bar of some kind?
