The exterior of all wooden bee hives must be protected from the wet otherwise the bees must use their energy to dry it out. You will understand the importance of this if you stand outside in wet clothes. Wood Stain & Protector is a multi-purpose, water-repellent quality coating that colours and protects the whole garden - provides weather-proofing protection to all types of timber and is so good that it will even adhere to masonry and terracotta pots - water-based wood stain with very low VOCs (volatile organic compounds) creates a quick-drying micro-porous coating that contains a mould inhibitor to protect the coating. Once dry it is not harmful to plants, children or animals making it the ideal choice not only for fencing and sheds, but playhouses and animal housing.
Paint this on internal timbers to stop them staining from dirt and make them wipe clean. This clear wood stain is a hard wearing water proof coating to be added over the top of Wood Protector. If you want to waterproof a building without adding more colour then use Clear Tough Coat. For example if you like a subtle look of just one coat of Wood Protector Cornflower you can increase waterproofing and protection by adding one or two coats of Clear Tough Coat.
A protective clear solution that can be applied to bare timber for a natural protective coating or coloured timber as a hard wearing top coat. Contains high levels of acrylic that increases the water proofing properties.
