That's a nice looking finish on your hives, what is it? I bet not many folks use that picnic table behind your hives for picnics, but it probably makes a handy place to set your tools and stuff during inspections?
I stained them with a cedar deck stain from Behr, I gave them 2 coats and that darkened them up, but I stained some honey supers w/1 coat and their much lighter.
(LOL....Yeah that would be no picnic for sure!)
When I 1st got my bees I put the picnic table out in front off to the left of the hives and would sit and watch them.
Well.......they got a little aggressive when they got stronger and they let me know in "stinging terms" I was not welcome their anymore!
The picnic table makes for a great work bench! I set the supers on the table and my tools and stuff on the seat....it's perfect.
I don't stand on it, but I can stand on the 4x4's and plywood between the hives.
Tell you what 2-wheeler your one brave beek up on that ladder i look at the picture and I'm scared for you :shock:
Mine got to 8 mediums high and man that's up there...need a crane!
Hey, thanks for looking!
