Painting your hives is not a necessary thing to do but we consider it to be very important. It benefits protection and the identification of the bees and proves to be the most common way to protect your hives from weather damage. We offer a range of different colours and types of paint for both polystyrene and wooden beehives.
Galtane's soft coloured varnishes are mainly used for varnishing wooden cabinets since varnished beehives tend to last longer against the elements and general wear and tear. We offer a brightly coloured range of paint for all polystyrene beehives.
At Nectarist we use propoleum to varnish our beehives. Propoleum is made from propolis and bioethanol. We consider it to be one of the most bee-friendly and sustainable products for painting wooden beehives and covering any surface that is exposed to sun and rain.
