    I've noticed the paint on the finger joints of my brood chambers and honey supers hives is peeling off. Can the corners be touched up while being used in an active hive? :confused:

    I don't see why not, so long as you're only painting the outside of the hive and not the inside. I definately would not paint the inside.
