I heard that weed fabric makes a good inner cover so I tried it. When I pulled the fabric up I noticed bees all over it. They were completely stuck to it, tangled up in the fibers. Time to get more feed bags.

What's weed fabric? is that thestuff you put down and then plant through and it keeps weeds from coming up too? I have a friend who used to use old Army tent material for inner covers and now uses tar paper. I don't use the tar paper, too much tearing.

You got it, I think it may be made from fiberglass. I like the plastic woven feed bags except they like to unravel. Tar paper sounds like it may be a little toxic, or is it not truly tar?
