This will be my first year with bees and I may have made a newbie mistake. I ordered a cypress wood hive. Its such beautiful wood, I didnt want to paint it white and take away all the beauty. So I went out and bought some stain/sealant that stains the wood the color of a violin.
After staining the hive today with the stain, I thought it seemed to be more of a red-ish color. This triggered a memory of reading that bees cant see red.
Have I made a mistake? I am sure I could paint over them - but if this color is ok I will leave it. Just want everyones opinion.
Thanks in advance!
