The natural oils make it less prone to warping, less susceptible to bug infiltration, and less likely to rot than other woods. Though you can paint it, you certainly dont have to because of its naturally durable qualities. Left untreated it will weather to a lovely, light gray patina. The British Standard National hive is the most commonly used beehive in the U. The history is a bit vague, but it seems to have been introduced in around 1920 or slightly before as the “Simplicity” hive, later becoming the “National Hive”.
