Oiled and Waterproof Service
This process of oiling the hive will take at least 3 days to do, we have to let the first coat of clear Danish oil dry before we apply the next coat, 3 coats and your long hive will not need doing for years or decades.....
Made sense to have the oiling done pre-delivery as it meant we could put bees in pretty well straightaway.
Definitely worth getting done, especially with the weather we've had recently.
Nowhere dry to do it myself, as much as my wife loves the hive I don't think I would have got away with doing it in the front room...
I’m glad I had the option of the oiled service as since I received the hive it has rained consistently! No place to store and no place to do myself. As with the hive, a great job.
