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.
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.
