I'm just painting some boxes for the first time. Should I be painting the contact surfaces / rims of the hive boxes?
I'm concerned that the paint will stick bond them together if I do. I'm concerned that they will rot quicker if they are not protected and moisture seeps between the cracks.
What do other people do?
I have a can of Minwax paste wax - should I use that as a protectant in this area?
