Re: Best way to insulate and ventilate my hive for winter in Iowa
I plan on doing the same. Foam around the sides and Vivaldi boards with fondant and burlap in the top for moisture. From what I've read on this site you don't want any gaps for air to get in other than the normal entrance and inner cover. I too would like to hear more experience guys chime in for our area of IA and NE. I'm sure Michael Bush will have good info for us.
