    If I'm going to combine I usually just add the bars from one of the colonies into the other with a healthy dose of smoke. I've tried adding a newspaper between the two colonies and that has worked as well.

    Here's how I do it. First of all, I have a follow board with a queen excluder in the middle of it. I just cut a square hole in one of my follower boards. Then I glued and stapled a cut piece to fit from a larger plastic queen excluder. Having this queen excluder, you can cover the queen excluder area with newspaper and do the newspaper process. Just slice a small area or 2 of the newspaper. In a few days, the bees will have migrated over thru the newspaper/excluder.
