The Ultimate Hive Cover is a durable 10-frame hive cover that is made from recycled material and never needs painting. Air space, between its constructed double wall, supplies insulation to keep hives cooler in summer and warmer in winter. The lightweight design is easy to handle and will support hive bodies when turned upside-down. Includes an overhanging drip edge to prevent water from entering hive, and a passive ventilation system to improve airflow throughout the hive.
As reviewed by others, this is a great top with zero maintenance. BUT, if you use top feeders, dont use these tops while feeding. By design, the top does not rest on the entire perimeter of your feeder and your bees, ants and other critters easily access your syrup and most drown.
great for humid climates
Tropical humid climate always having to fight mold, wood rot and termites... now have the ultimate bottom board and ultimate hive cover on everyone of my hives. Great ventilation, no mold, no rot, makes it harder for the termites to get to wood. We get some strong tropical storms... with a brick on top of each cover, I have never had one come off.

No problems. Purchased it for its low maintenance and insulation qualities. Not been disappointed. Will order more!

another winner of a product
Like the ultimate bottom board, these covers are fantastic. ZERO maintenance, great ventilation in summer and insulation in winter. Ill never use anything else.
High wind? no problem - get a cheap four pack of ratcheting tie-down straps from harbor freight and use one at every hive. Beats the heck out of lugging rocks and bricks around.

This cover works great in the South here in Louisiana. My girls seem to enjoy the extra ventilation in the summer. Only one time did the wind pose a problem and cocked the lid alittle. That was during a thunderstorm anyway. The girls keep it glued down pretty tight. Not sure if this lid would work well in high wind areas.
