I'm a relatively new forum member and am planning to start biological beekeeping in spring 2006, as the first (or the second)such beekeeper in Serbia.
What I'm interested in is how to paint the beehives: linenseed oil would do good at preservation, but I am thinking about propolis oil solution as a final paint. What are the experiences, if any?
If not propolis, what else, what are the materials of choice?
Thanks in advance,
