To paint or not to paint....

I am having a hard time deciding on painting the copper metal on my hive covers or not. Copper being what it is, can be enticing for someone to try to take, especially in an urban setting. What does everyone think?

Painted





I like the idea of hunter green, but what about any other colors? Feel free to send comments on paint colors or not.

  1. Okay I have to admit, I like the hunter green color. My only concern is that with copper being a precious metal, someone would try to snatch the top. But let's think about it..how many people are bold enough to do that with a hive full of bees? Plus you're going to have it on your deck. But if you're going to paint it, I say do it just like you have in the picture. Good job!
