Hi all -- I purchased some treated migratory covers and discovered they're treated with that "green stuff" that stinks pretty bad. Any concerns/opinions about using these?

They are migratory hives (not telescoping)... I figured "treated" was better than "untreated" but wish I'da just ordered plain. Bummer.

I contacted Mann Lake about this last year.  It's a food grade wood preservative that they use.  It's fine to use.

Thanks BassMann Smiley  I also found you could paint over the preservative which I've done with no probs.
