I got the aftermath of a swarm that was picked up by another keep, probably 2 lbs of bees-no queen. I put them in a 5 frame nuc, took 2 frames of capped/uncapped brood/eggs with nurse bees and put in with them. They have been fairly busy, some bringing in pollen etc. This weekend I will check and see if they had an egg to raise a queen, if there is no queen cell, I am thinking of a newspaper combine with a weaker hive. If I do this will they chew through the paper fairly quickly? You do not have an entrance for them to come and go until they chew through the paper and mix with the parent hive correct? Do you use only one layer of paper? This is still new to me, thanks for any replies!
