    I want to combine 2 weak hives using the newspaper method.
    What has been your experience with killing one queen versus letting them figure it out?

    ABC/XYZ says it is not neccesary to kill one queen and that usually the queen from the top box is the one who survives.

    If you have no preference between the two queens based on race, production, temprament etc. then I'd let the bees sort it out. If you DO have a preference them by all means kill the one you don't want to keep.
