It was suggested that I should paint my hives black to keep the temperatures up during the winter. I found two at Lowe's for a not outrageous price. Now, I am trying to figure out which one would work better. One says that it is livestock safe and the other says it is environmentally friendly.
The livestock safe and more expensive one appears to be >99% organic and cover twice as much area. Is there something I am missing? Are both types safe for my bees?
