Inner covers are essential for wintering bees in wooden hives. An inner cover allows moisture to escape and fresh air to be circulated throughout the hive when properly used with an outer cover. Our inner cover features a notched rim and a deeper rim on one side to allow for feeing patties. They are assembled with screws for a better fit and longer life. Learn more about the new features here.
During winter, turn the notch side of the inner cover down to provide an upper entrance and better ventilation. In the summer, turn the notch side up. Made of Luan plywood with a pine rim.
