    Default spray paint?

    Is it ok to take a stencil and spray paint my registration # on my bee hives? What I mean is will it hurt the bees?

    Can you really read the hive numbers after stenciling the bees?

    Sorry, I couldn't resist!

    A light coat of spray paint dries quickly in the sun. Being in FL you may actually have some sun, OH doesn't!

    Leave the hive cover on and mark the side not the front. The girls will not even know you are there.
