I am staining my boxes with a combination sealer/stain and was wondering how dark you are able to go with the color. I know it depends on your location and climate but, how much of a difference does light colored hives make? I see a lot of multi-colored boxes online and have even seen black. I know the tradition is to paint hives white. However, in certain situations, that stands out and draws attention more than one would like. Thanks for your input.
