Heavy-duty weather protection for your bees. Telescoping outer covers (combined with a proper Wooden Inner Cover) are essential to beekeeping in the North. It functions like the eaves of a house, protecting the hive bodies from both rain and wind. Telescoping refers to the aspect that the rim extends out over the edges of the super or hive body that you place it on. Our Telescoping Outer Cover features the deepest rim available in the industry, PLUS a heavy duty 26 gauge, galvanized top. Serious protection for your bees. 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.


22” x 18-1/4” x 2-1/2”  (For 10 frame hives)

22” x 15-3/4” x 2-1/2”  (For 8 frame hives)

If you want to build your own outer covers, you can buy Galvanized Pans to make it easier.
