This is going to sound a bit peculiar so I figured I would ask those in the know or at least those who know more than I. When I started last year with three hives I painted them 3 separate and very different covers I just got some new woodwork and was going to paint them tonight . My question is if I have several hives in the same area with the same color supers and brood boxes will it confuse the bees. I also wondered if I added a blue super to a red hive would that confuse the bees as well. I know most keeps do all there woodwork white as to keep it interchangeable am I better off repainting everything one color or does it not really matter.
