Folks are coming and going but nobody is posting anything. It's almost like a party without alchohol or something.

Is everybody ready for spring, I know I'm not? I have several Warré boxes to finish and my top bars.

Patience! People need to get used to the idea.
Well done anyway.

Pretty much ready. I plan on expanding to 6 hives if my current TBH and Warre survive the rest of the winter. All 4 new hives will be Warre. The only thing I have to do now is apply some linseed oil to the hives. How warm do you think it has to be to apply Linseed oil? Have you ever done Tung oil? I have heard of some people using it and I have a hard time finding regular linseed oil.

From boatbuilding I know that you can soak wooden parts in linseed oil that is just below it's boiling point. The guys used to use old crock pots. I would recommend a double boiler arrangement and do it outside away from the house if possible and keep a fire extuingisher nearby.

I would coat the outside of the hive boxes but let the bees do their own treatments to the inside.

I have never used tung oil.
