My flow 2+ arrived yesterday and I’m super keen to jump in and set it up.
I’ve been reading the threads here, and the offical word on what to do to seal the cedar hives and it sounds like wax immersion sealing is the way to go. Unfortunately I’ve missed the boat on wax sealing this year as it’s only offered as a service in winter time.
I understand that Linseed and Tung oil in humid environments (my block connects to a temporate rain forest) have had problems with mildew so I’m likely to steer away from that unless I hear otherwise here. I’m not certain if that was only for pine hives or applied to the cedar too.
I’ve heard that a few keepers have used UltraDeck in the past and I was wondering if someone was willing to share photos of their setup and how it’s held up over time.
I’d be especially keen to hear from people in my area.
I think both look nice, just depending on what you’re after. I think i’ll be painting my other brood box (i have two) with cabbots and replacing the one i don’t like as much. i’ll post side by side shots here when i’m done so people can benefit
