          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

            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.
