How long before the newspaper will be chewed and the hives combined?
I have a full medium hive with an active queen that I just combined with a queenless hive using the newspaper combine method. The queen right hive was placed on top of a queenless, 1med,1deep hive. Only the queenless hive has outside access at this point.
I want to know when I can go in and check that the combine worked well, the queen is still laying, etc.
PS. It has been about 42 hours so far.
