    Does the color of the support wires matter?...I'm out of silver, and have a full bolt of green, and no way to town till tomorrow.
    Thanks

    From what I have read, I think bees are color blind, or see with different light than us, or something to that effect. I don't think it would matter to them what color you use.

    The color should not matter since it is dark inside of the hive.
