As an addition, beekeepers do dip their hive boxes in hot paraffin to protect the timber from the elements - one dip apparently prevents the wood from rotting for 75 years or more if done properly.
is one example of a youtube video on how to do this.
Also have a look here about what means "properly". Or, google for "paraffin beekeeping" or something similar to get comments from beekeepers on what is good procedure.
