    My mother is very interestead with raising bees and has found a rubber bee hive. I don't belive that a rubber one is too practical. We don't have cold winters but hotter ones. Apperntly wood warps and you need to repaint it often. I agree with haveing to repaint it often. I have done some research and I don't think that rubber isn't a good material for bee hives. What do you think and what material is better?

    Sorry, I'm no expert but have never heard of a rubber bee hive... Doing a Google search turns up a rubber bee hive toy... like 2-3 inches tall.

    That is what I thought since I looked and I didn't find anything. I did want to ask just to make sure tho. I do prefer wood too
