You can "mix bees" by doing the mixing in the afternoon when the bees are busy--the foragers are out working, the bees on the combs will be the young bees and when you take a frame of say brood and bees and place into the new split there should be no problems. If any kind of problem occurs just spray with sugar water or smoke the bees! Hope this helps!
