Painting vs Stain/Seal Flow Hive?

Good day all. We have 2 cedar FH2’s and are looking to paint/seal/stain for longevity. Would love to hear some recommendations for that. Looking to do sooner than later because I will be picking up the nucs in the beginning of May. Ps from NJ with all 4 seasons. Thank you!!

I’m a fan of hot wax dipping if it is available around where you are!

Thank you for the response. I did look into that but doesn’t seem like an option at this time.

Tung oil on cedar. It brings out the deep shades and protects. Ceder doesn’t need treating but 3 years my ceder flow huve 2 looks like new and UK winters see the worst of weather.
