I have a good number of nucs that will be overwintering in a 5 over 5 nuc arrangement. In painting nuc tops, would there be a difference in painting the tops something other than white. Up till now, all my tops are painted white.
But..... would there be any benefit to painting those used over winter a darker color? I know the darker color would heat up better with sunlight. But what about the underside. Would darker colors on the inside of the tops, transfer heat differently in the absence of light? With no sunlight, do different colors transfer heat or have different dynamics as compared to lighter colors?
I'm thinking of putting on darker colored tops, but not sure if there would be any concerns or something I am not thinking of.
