I'm still dealing with my queenless issues. I have combined the hives using the Newspaper method. (If this is "news" to you here it is: Put the queenless hive on the bottom, cover with one sheet of newspaper, put the hive with the queen on the top). In theory they are supposed to chew through the paper. The question: HOW LONG DOES THAT TAKE?
I can't find a reference in any of the materials I have for how long it takes them to chew through.
Tomorrow I have a new queen coming so will requeen this combined hive as well, which is why I'm asking. I hope the answer to the question is 2 days.
