The double wall construction keeps the heat out and cold out. I like them very much.

Great roofs for my new hives
Replaced wooden telescoping outer cover with this cover and noticed that my bees aren’t building burr comb on the top underside of the cover. I also purchased an Ultimate robbing/ moving screen to my hive; it works great. I keep only on side of it open so entrance is very small. There are venting holes that allow the aromas of honey, nectar, and bee bread for robbing bees to smell, but they can’t fit through the holes and the small entrance I have is very easy for my bees to guard in case robbers find the opening.I am keeping the robber screen on until winter prep. l also purchased the Ultimate screened bottom board that also comes 4 mouse excluders/entrance reducers which I will install after I remove the robbing screen. It also comes with a plastic coated bottom board that can be used for mite and small hive beetle monitoring
