I've made the decision to dip my hives this year for a multitude of reasons, but I haven't found much info on dipping plywood.
I'm switching to migratory covers so I don't need to get my friend to bend 100+ tele cover flashings to meet this year's requirements and to save a couple $$.

Can anyone direct me to 5-frame nuc plans that use 2x12 lumber (rather than traditional 1x12 or plywood)?
