I hadn’t thought about this particular wrinkle in my beekeeping to-do list.
I stain my deck every few years to protect the wood. The stain is supposed to be applied when the weather is relatively warm. The trouble is, when it gets warm enough to stain the deck, I’ll be picking up my bees and installing them—yep—on the deck.
The last thing I want is for them to get stuck in the wet stain. Of course, I don’t want my deck to rot away, either. Will you keep your fingers crossed for a spell of warm-enough weather the week before the bees are ready?
I need all the luck I can get on this one.
