        From  http://www.titebond.com:

        "Titebond II Premium Wood Glue is the only leading brand, one-part
        wood glue that passes the ANSI Type II water-resistance specification.
        It is ideal for exterior woodworking projects, including outdoor
        furniture, birdhouses, mailboxes, planters and picnic tables.

        "Titebond II Premium provides a strong initial tack, fast speed of
        set, superior strength and excellent sandability. It is FDA approved
        for indirect food contact (cutting boards) and is ideal for radio
        frequency (R-F) gluing systems."

        That's what I use. I'm very satisfied with it. I also coat the
        exterior of my hives with exterior latex paint to further protect the
        glue as well as to extend the life to f the wood. Paint color?
        Whatever miss-mixed paint the store has on hand.

                Good suggestion on the glue - but if you wanted to take it one step further - one-piece top bars, with no glues and no screws - are still your best long-term bet.

                Also - did you know that most latex paint off-gasses for up to five years? It's true - and what do they off-gas? Formaldehyde. Known for triggering serious reactions, and also found in laminated plywoods and chipboard. (Do we really paint our kids' bedrooms with this stuff???)

                But one company - Mythic - makes a high quality, non-toxic exterior latex, comes in a billion beautiful colors, stands up well to outdoor use, and it doesn't off-gas a thing. That's why we use it on the roofs of our Deluxe Gold Star hives, where the roof comes painted.

                Check out Mythic paint's website here: http://www.mythicpaint.com/ They'll ship to you if you don't live close to somebody who carries it.
