I have just received my Hive Identification Number, how are other beeks applying there’s? Branding, painting ect. Are others even bothering if they have only one hive?
I have written my number with permanent marker bottom RH corner of the boxes.
I just use the biggest permanent marker I can buy and write it about 2" high on each hive.
I branded mine. I went to a kitchen store and got a $25 steak branding kit (comes with a heap of letters and numbers and an iron to slot them on). Heated it up on the stove and stamped the hive.
