We have been busy over the weekend building and painting bee hive boxes. We paint our hives with Boiled Linseed oil, we find this breaths better than paint and it makes the Macrocarpa wood look fantastic.
We saw this great idea on How to Paint a Beehive Box on another website and its a quicker way to paint hive boxes. Without them all sticking together, when you normally do them.
You thread the boxes on a long pole between two scaffold stands; it makes it easier to paint the whole box at once.
Anyway just a quick post to share this tip with you.
