What a mess! How do you handle a mess like this?
Notice that there is no dripping honey.
After I discovered what had happened, I broke the supers apart and put them back together. The bees cleaned up all the drippings of honey and later I could eliminate the bees and recover what I could. The honey was great and enjoyed by the family and neighbors as comb honey. The dry, unfilled combs were melted down for wax.
It's just a matter of patience.

I am always amazed as to the configurations that bees can come up with when left to their own devices.

When I spotted the photo at first in my thumbnails, I thought to myself, "where did I ever get a picture of someone's brain". :-o Only when I enlarged the pic, did I remember the incident. All I can do is refer you back to Perry's comment---and agree about how right he is.
