Wintering Inner Cover

Product Description

Available for either 8 or 10 frame boxes, this two-sided inner cover offers benefits all year round. Integrates with optional inner cover insulation, sold separately.

During the warmer months, the shallow side faces down and functions as a typical inner cover. The hole in the center can be used for feeding, with a mason jar surrounded by an empty hive body.

During the winter, the deep side is used as a mold to pour sugar candy. This faces down and hive moisture, often a problem in the winter, softens the candy so the bees can feed. This puts the feed at the top of the hive, right were the bees will need it when they exhaust their stored honey reserves.

To make candy

Bring the following to a slow boil while stirring, until a candy-like consistency is reached at 220-230 degrees F:

  • 7 lbs. of sugar
  • 1 lb. of water (2 cups)
  • 1 1/2 lbs (1 1/8 cup) HFCS

Remove the candy from the heat and stir in 1 lb. of pollen substitute with a whisk.

Pour the mixture into a mold and allow to cool. A mason jar can be used to seal and cover the hole in the center and removed when the candy sets.
