We opened the cabinet about two weeks ago

That’s what they said when I asked how long the thought the bees had been in there. Thankfully Mike the Marine (see a previous post) was there to help.  We opened the cabinet and saw comb filling the top half of the cabinet.  It was maybe 18 inches wide by 1 foot deep and about 18 inches from the top to the shelf.  Comb filled every inch of that space.  Mike wanted another hive and brought an empty hive.  We fill 6 of 10 frames full of comb and still threw away about 10 pounds of wax.
