I need to build some additional quilt boxes for this winter. I am thinking of trying landscaping fabric like what is put down under gravel driveways or in gardens to control weeds. It's a tough fabric but will still breathe and allow air and water to move through it. I'm hoping it's strong enough so I can avoid having to use the wire.Lobottome;
Heavy wet snow turned to heavy rain and then quick temperature drop. Not the usual breathable snow. Thanks for info on shavings box bottoms. With 1/8 hardware cloth only, shavings rained down a fair bit of fines into the frames. Cotton like Tee shirt got chewed. I have a bunch of ex sand bag burlap. The criss cross wire would be easy and not permanent so the box is still useable as honey super.
Equipment creep and storage can get out of hand!
