Bee Cozy winter wraps have shielded Honey bees from harsh Canadian winters for over 25 years. These easy to use – slip-on, slip-off – UV treated polypropylene wraps contain environmentally friendly R8 fiberglass, just the insulating layer your bees need to winter successfully. The Bee Cozy protects your hives from freezing winter temperatures and provides a windbreak for breezy locations. Slip the Bee Cozy on your bee hives in late fall to prevent unnecessary heat loss and conserve feed stores. Your bees will brood up faster, so you can split earlier in the spring and be ready for the honey flow. The Bee Cozy helps beekeepers to ‘wrap up’ overwintering and move into spring with stronger, healthier brood and bees!
The Bee Cozies are reusable year a er year, so when you calculate it out, they are not be prohibitively expensive, especially if it saves you from having to order more bees. I’ve gotten ve years out of mine so far, and I don’t see an issue going forward.
This method of wintering hives uses one insulated black wrap that goes over each hive individually. is has got to be the easiest way to winter hives in that, it is very little work. In 4 easy steps the hive is ready for winter.
