What is Gum Rosin?

Steven May says:

how long does this process last and how often do you re-dip your hive

good way to protect the entire hive box as compared to painting just the outside of the box… good idea to always have a fire extinguisher handy – safey is always part of the plan.

Kevin Gant says:

Do you ever need to re-dip any of the wooden ware?
