We have found the dovetails on the Beemax hives are so tight that it is not mandatory to glue them. However, we do have some customers who have done so to increase the strength of the locked corner and gain some more peace of mind. If you do, only a very small amount is needed at each joint as the glue expands as it dries. The pint bottle will glue about 75 hive bodies. Surround the glued hive bodies or supers with large rubber bands to tighten the joints while the glue dries.
