I opened my hives on Saturday and found that one of them is apparenty queenless. No brood or eggs at any stage. My other hive has a queen, but not much brood and few bees. I think I will have to requeen that one, as she seems weak, but in the meantime, I have decided to combine the hives. What time of day should I do it? I have the hives separated by about 30 feet and I am afraid that I will lose a lot of foragers if I do it during the day, when I would usually work them. It is about 85 degrees today. Should I wait until almost dark or perhaps early in the morning? I am planning to take the queenless hive , wihich is two deeps and put it on top of the other hive with a sheet of newspaper between them. Also, should I create an upper entrance for the queenless bees to get out during the day until they get through the newspaper? Any suggestions or information about how and when to do this would be appreciated. Thank you.
