Ideally 3 to 5.
I'd like to combine 2 of my colonies, however, I'm uncertain as to what happens after they've 'combined'....

Let's say hive A gets put on top of Hive B with newspaper between. Once they've munched through the paper will a significant proportion of those from Hive A simply return to their original location in the same apiary?
