Was doing an inspection today and found this on the bottom of the frame. I thought it was just burr comb, but when I scraped it off it revealed this....

This is an overwintered Russian hive. It wintered in two deeps, I reversed the boxes as there was nothing but drawn comb in the bottom box, all bees were in top box. It didn't seem very populated at the time so I left it at one box until they built up more. It was pretty packed with bees when I checked it today and found what I took the pics of. I checkerboarded the brood box with drawn comb and put the other deep back on. Any other suggestions?
