5 Frame Nuc Inner Cover

  • Item Code: NUC5IC
  • 11.95 USD$11.95

An inner cover allows moisture to escape and fresh air to be circulated throughout the hive, plus acts as an upper entrance/exit when properly used with an outer cover. Our inner cover features a notched rim on one end. After your inner cover is on with the notch forward, add the outer cover and make sure the outer cover is pushed forward so there's a gap at the front of the outer cover. This allows air and bees to go through the notch in the inner cover, all year round.

During winter, turn the notch side of the inner cover down to provide an upper entrance and ventilation. This also means the deep side of the rim is downward. In the summer, flip so the notch side is up. This also will make it so the shallower side of the rim is down, ensuring the bees have no more room above the frames than their normal Bee Space. If the deep side is down in summer, bees will build a lot of comb just under the inner cover. Made of Luan plywood or smooth tempered Masonite, with a pine outer rim. Design may vary slightly depending on availability
