Winter Prep Quilt Box 8 Frame

$26.00

AVAILABLE FALL 2016 in 10 & 8 frame - Winter use only - Assembled and primed.

This is a shallow super with a built-in 'quilt' component meant to be placed above the inner cover and below the telescoping cover. Includes homasote wicking for absorbing honey bee resperation during winter confinement. It will need to be filled with some pine needles or pine shavings. Untreated burlap mask helps keep insulation from falling in through the center inner cover opening.

Combined with other winter prep measures this set up helps prevent hypothermia or chalk brood and sack-brood virus that can result from too much moisture. It allows moisture to collect in the insulation for use by the bees as they might need.
