so i use 2" styfoam in my double deep hives wrapped with black stretch and seal plastic, to get solar gain and stop drafts. a local beek here winters indoors, when he takes his hives out in the spring he has made a cover of bubble wrap for the first few weeks as clusters break up to keep the hive warmer at night!
i have built these bubble wrap covers but have not put ventilation holes in the upper part would this be much of a problem when temperatures are above freezing.
remember i wish to only use these in the spring not all winter
