What is the minimum time for airing out equipment after it is painted? I need the nuc boxes that I am painting tomorrow morning on Sunday. Is that long enough time for them to air out?
Paint on the inside doesn't seem to hurt some of the hives I have in old equipment where the bottom boards were painted. I also have some swarm catchers that I used painted boards and the bees don't seem to mind moving into them.
