    Should we paint the entire bottom board? Or just the sides and porch?

    I paint everything except the area of the inside of the hive, hope that makes sense.

    I painted it all based on seeing my mentor doing same. Inside and out. It will get a lot of crud on it , paint will protect it

    I paint it all, because it's easier and I hate painting.
