If I have a hive that's Italian and another that's Carniolan, it's it okay to combine them together using the newspaper method? Or would they kill each other?
I have a deep super that's LOADED with honey that I would like to put on a hive that's really weak. I wanted to not take the bees out of this super and just combine with the other hive to give them a little boost. I know the queen is not in it cause she's been hanging out in the super below it lately.
Combining colonies is no problem, I just never done it between races before.
