A telescoping outer cover is the beekeeper’s traditional cover for non-migratory beekeeping. It functions like the eaves of a house, protecting the hive from both rain and wind. Our outer cover features the deepest rim available in the industry, plus a heavy duty 26 gauge galvanized top. Keep a stone or brick on top to keep the cover from blowing off in a storm.
Hint: Our Telescoping Outer Covers are constructed with a 26 gauge galvanized metal. Others will try to sell you 30 gauge, which we find tears very easily and does not last nearly as long. This cover is a beast, as beehive covers all should be.
