Providing a Roof and Insulation for Your Hive

As many of you know my practice is to provide my hives with some sort of cover or roof during the wet and cold months along with top insulation to help keep the heat in. As stated before almost anything can be used to put a layer between the bee colony and the elements. Susan sends and update with a photo of her set up. Corrugated roof cut to size and a cardboard box stuffed with foam, bubble wrap, and packaging pellets. This is simple and quick to do and it’ll help the bees greatly. If the cardboard does get wet, simply replace it.
