Re: Winter Wrapping Bee Hive
Moisture condenses on a cold surface. Hence, insulation above the inner cover is warmer on the inside hive side and moisture will not condense above the cluster and drip on it. An absorbing materal on the under side of the foam is better yet. It will absorb moisture and not drip.
Wood inner cover absorbs moisture. And moisture does not readily condense above warm air rising through hole in the inner cover.
Suspended ceiling board works well, burlap, leaves, etc. all absorb moisture and prevent dripping.
If you always do what you always did, you'll always get what you always got!
