Hey all - I am a fan of all white uniform hives, but found that I needed some way to differentiate my hives in my notes. I decided to add a spray-painted different colored washers screwed to the front of all my hive tops so I can note specifics about each hive while still keeping white hives (blue, green, purple - you get the idea) (in the photo below). My question is while this works for my notes does this do anything for the bees? I have under 10 hives so I'm not super worried about drift but I am wondering if the bees see can see the painted washer and use it to identify the hive?????
