    Default Combining and moving in one step?

    I have a very weak queenless hive that I want to combine with a newly installed nuc. I plan on doing a newspaper style combine, but I would prefer for the final outcome to be in the location of the weaker hive, which is only abt 4' away. Do you think I will lose a lot of foragers? Seeking advice on how to achieve this with the least drama. Thanks for your consideration!

    Combine in the middle (2' from each), wait a couple of weeks, than move to the spot you want.
