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.

The bees should have chewed through overnight. Did you cut a slit or poke a few holes in the paper?
