I get the free paint from my hazardous materials depo....most of it is from people who either order too much or order the wrong color. I got a real good beige Kelly Moore...heck of a deal...a free full gallon.

Sandy, I honestly don't know if I would paint anything that is on the inside of the hives.  Your husband may be right about the gasses released from the wood, but I think that paint inside the hive might be worse.  I don't know for sure if paint inside does harm though.  I just know that I will not/do not paint inside the hive.  Have a beautiful day, great life, great health.  Cindi

thats what I told him but he says latex paint dries and does not give off any fumes, even when it burns. and since the bee's do not necessarily touch the top of the telescoping cover...well, I guess I will see...if the bee's take off I can blame him right?

Three of mine are painted white and one I did not paint at all. I do believe that I am not going to paint any more. The hive that is not painted is looking much better than the painted ones.

I found a gallon of "Tiggerific" at Home Depot in the Oops stack for $4.  It's a Disney color.  Nice semi-gloss exterior grade at $4.  I couldn't pass it up!

Just starting out. No paint for me. I like the natural look and think the bees do also.
