Uniting a queenless swarm with a small developing swarm to create a new strong and united beehive.
In case we have a weak or queenless hive and don’t want to lose it, we can merge it with a strong one to create a new bigger and stronger hive. We can combine two weak swarms in the same way. To achieve the merging, however, a gradual period of acquaintance and mixing of odors of the two swarms is required so that they do not fight with each other. A tried and tested method is the Newspaper Method and it will give results in just a few days.
