Tung oil is good to use on the outside of the beehive, Baoluo. It will allow for the wood to breathe and maintain it’s appearance for several years. DO NOT finish the inside of the hive since the bees will take care of that themselves and they do not like certain odors/smells. Just use several light coats and allow it to dry several days before giving it to the bees. Hardly know a bee that did not appreciates a well built home.

What type of hives did you build for them? Build the Kenya hives myself. Luck to you and the bees.
