Last Saturday I united 2 hives with a couple of nucs. Is it safe yet to go into the hives and move the frames around and remove one of the brood chambers?

Books say leave for a week so I assume everything has settled down now.

I do not want to disturb them too soon.

Lots of shredded newspaper looking like tissue dust! (Could be because its the Daily Mail)?
