    Default reuniting bees

    I did a stump cut out and filled two medium boxes with comb. I combined 1 box of comb with the vacuumed bees and brought it home. I left the other box of comb on site to gather the foragers and stray bees in the area. can I just re combine these? will they remember each other? or should I do a newspaper combine.

    Newspaper combine is easy enough and then you won't have to worry about it

    It depends on the time span. there will be no problems for a 3 day separation, maybe up to a week. but as Harley said. a newspaper combine is so east it almost is worth the 20 extra seconds to be on the safe side.
