One thing I need to be thinking about is woodware protection. What seems to hold up the best. Paint or Stain. Thanks
The last line shows some innovative thinking. Win, win for everyone! :thumbsup:Greenb3tree said:Third option is to dip in a melted wax and rosin mixture. I have heard that hives treated this way can last a really long time. BUT you need the materials and setup. I want to do this eventually, just can't cough up the expense right now. Thinking maybe of eventually doing the setup then seeing if the local club wants to do a Winter "dip your hives day" where everyone can chip in for the wax and rosin used.
