Re: Painting Hive Bodies
I don't paint the top or bottoms, but the sides I do... even in the 60's and
70's I never did either. Barry paints everything, inside and out. All depends on you. One thing I ca note: If you paint the tops and bottom edges, give them a rub with steel wool or sand paper or set them on the ground to get a little dirt on them... that will stop the sticking together. Even after you wipe the dirt off the stickiness will be diluted.
