I have already purchased my hives, and will be assembling them this winter during the cold months. I like to plan ahead, so even though I will not be painting my hives until January I still want to know what to use. I am a Novice Woodworker and have a lot of finishes at my disposal. I thought about possibly finishing my hives in either White Real Milk Paint or 100% Tung Oil. Of course, I want to go as close to 'organic' as possible to ensure my bees aren't exposed to VOCs. I don't want to be exposed to VOCs, and I don't want my bees to be exposed to them either. What are your thoughts? Thanks for the replies in advance.
