    Re: A how to dip Beehives Video

    How do you think dipping plywood nucs and traps would do? Maybe hold up a littel longer than with out or just painted? Does it seem to seal the ends of the wood good?

    Yeah I thought about making a few of those but What says that I cant make a few standard size bodies out of the plywood? Make them the same way you would make them out of soft pine.
