Prepping the (new) Hive

By now you know that the responsible beekeeper preps a new hive before installing his/her queens and setting the hive up in the elements. This past weekend Cam did exactly that, painting the cypress wood with a coat of white exterior paint (never on the inside of the hive) to protect the wood from the elements and help reflect heat on the warmest of summer days.
