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.....

I love the Hyde Hive so much! The coating has protected from the extreme storms we’ve had plus the lashing rain. The colour is bright too. Really worth it ti protect the hives
Makes sense to oil the hive in 'factory conditions' before facing the weather. A good-looking job.
Well worth the money to have the hive oiled and waterproofed before delivery.
Nice finish and rich colour.
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...
