I'd say they had been there for a while.

Looks like they had built to the left also? I can see the main hive and a little bit top right, looks like some to the left also. About 30,000 bees?

good eye! there is more to the left but i couldnt get it in the shot.

it was about 8 inches wide and wound through  the electrical system  :-x.

the hive looks good and is packing in stores.
gotta look in a while to confirm queen cause i havent seen her yet.
there acting queenright though!
it was enough bees to fill 2 medium boxes.
