Your New Bees Arriving Soon!

According to Shelly Felder, owner of the Honey Hole, our bees may get here a little earlier than expected.  We are uncertain of the date, but we all need to be ready.  This means you need to make painting your hive a priority.  I suggest using a high grade latex paint (2 coats) as your base.  White is the traditional base color, but I have also used brillant Yellow and a light shade of purple and green for the supers (upper boxes of the hive).

Please refer to the Part I Setting Up  and Establishing Your  Hive tab for more information on painting your hive.
