I combined 2 hives on Sunday morning. I put newspaper betwwen the two brood boxes and I just went out and checked on them and they have eaten through the paper and seem to be co-existing nicely. Should I leave the paper in a few more days or should I remove it. I want the bees making brood and stores, not chewing paper. Also, the weaker queenless hive I combined with my strong hive had laying workers so I have a bunch of drone brood in a bunch of gnarly looking comb. Will the bees fix the comb or should I pull the two frames of bad comb and give them new foundation to draw out?
