Will leaving a rhombus clearer board on for more than 12 hrs lead to the super filling up again? Answered

hi , I have placed a rhombus clearer board above the super, yesterday. After inspecting It today I have found that the super was nearly empty , with about 40 bees remaining. Thinking the best , I decided to leave it on , but have now read that if you leave it on for more than 12 hours the bees with work out how to get in again. Should i take it off now or in the morning? (its 16:53 GMT  now) . I apologise for my incompetence , I am pretty new at this ^^ any answers would be appreciated.

You may want to ask your sponsor. Assuming your working with other local bee keepers to learn how to properly keep bees. If your not then find a local group of bee keepers. I'm sure you can find one.
