The next day, I waited until it cooled off a bit and then re-hived them into a proper 8 frame box.
|Quite a mess at first|
I sprayed sugar water (1 to 1 mix with lemongrass/peppermint/thyme essential oils) on the frames in the box and provided them with plenty of syrup. You can see my 12 jar inner cover/feeder. The jars are sitting on 1/8th hardware screen so I can change out a jar without disturbing the colony.

Here is an up close view. They were fanning like crazy!
About an hour later, they settled down quite a bit.
They have consumed about a quart in a half of syrup in one day. The heat really brought out their activity
