    Default Animal Ear Tags

    Has anyone used Animal Ear Tags to cover lid holes so you don't have to pug them?

    I used them to number hive stands and they did not hold up well to the elements. I guess farm animals don't live long, get eaten first. I doubt they would waterproof a feeder hole, they would bend in the sun.

    A friend uses little galvanized metal squares with a hole drilled in one corner. Nailed to the lid it hinges open and shut and lays flat . I've been using small squares of Masonite dipped in hot wax, but they dont hold up more than a few years.

    Theres always a bag of them behind the seat, which comes open, and you can track me by the trail of plugs that fall out every time a door is opened....

    Canvas inner covers work well.

    I had some white cards left over from Apigaurd application. They work well. Seems as though the rain water that gets in doersn't make much difference.
