Hive maintenance

on April 27, 2010 in Bees

I am a little bummed out.

The new hive I made over Easter weekend needed maintenance.  I painted the roof and everything else with exterior latex paint.  Today I noticed that it was bubbling up in some places.  So I scraped off the bad paint (some rather large sections that didn’t stick to the wood at all) washed it down to clean it off.  I have now put a new first layer of paint on it, let’s hope it will stick better this time…
