    Re: Worry wart neighbors!

    Re: Linseed Oil as hive dip/preservative?

    I did my TBH with boiled linseed oil and beeswax. Melt the beeswax in the linseed oil and apply it with a brush. That was 3 years ago and the finish still looks good. Some people also add turpentine...

    Re: cheap swarm lure
