I had to combine two of my hives today. One only occupied a single deep with a empty med. on top. Total weight of the deep was only about 35 pounds, even though I have been feeding for over 6 weeks now. I did a newspaper combine and gave the "new upper deep" a 1" upper entrance/ventilation opening. I also put about 3 cups of dry sugar/megabee on top of the inner cover(I figured it couldn't hurt), and left the entrance feeders of syrup in place. Do you think the two queens will fight it out this time of the year, or will they tolerate each other until spring? The two hives had been right next to each other, so hopefully there won't be too much fighting.
