I have two swarms in adjacent nucleus boxes. I was thinking of putting them side by side with a shared single queen excluder and a honey super. This arrangement is supposed to be quite productive. Has anyone tried it?
Not sure if you got the idea from this guy (The Bee Whisperer)

He explains it in detail, says he’s tried it with great success.

Yes I watched a couple of videos on this subject. In my case I will only have a single deep.I will give it a go and see what happens.
I’ve done it before purely because running out of space particularly when the main flow is on and your trying to keep nucs as nucs and you’ve got no broods left😂
It’s pointless and a faff for any other reason run, and no room for expanding queens. Run as 2 if they are big enough or combine.
