I would think you could. I am going to try to combine two hives, a freshly caught swarm colony with an existing week queenless hive, doing the newspaper method. I will lay down a piece of newspaper between the two hives and let the bees slowly chew their way through to get to each other. Supposedly this allows the bees to get aquainted so there will be more acceptance of each other.

I have done this before using the newspaper method. It worked perfectly for me.
