About this item
I am along term advocate of insulated hives for best overwintering bees, using 2" thick Kingspan insulation. I anticipated that the winter wraps could replace my ageing units. NOT SO !!!. Water proof, yes, insulation value NIL. The product was supplied to cover a brood & a half (brood box +super). It is not long enough to cover the upper part of the super. Insulation wise, you might as well not bother. Ease of use, no. Fiddling about with the suggested drawing pins to secure the wraps to the hive is not a thought out solution, give consideration to velcro fasteners or similar. Overall I am very disappointed with the product, its mis-leading claims and its presentation. Value for money, NO. I will be better off using a sheet of polythene, much cheaper and just as effective
Great service would buy again.thanks
Not sure they will give any insulation, it's just a sheet of rubber. I thought it would possibly be padded or certainly not a single thickness.
Again another donated gift from yourselves for our Bibba conference raffle
