Overview

The Bee Snug All Season hive roof is the product of years of field testing prototypes, material sourcing, research, and industrial design. Exploration of non-traditional hive designs, such as the Warre hive and its quilt box; natural tree cavities honey bee colonies tend to nest in; and discussions with and admiration for the work of Dr. Thomas Seeley led us down a long road to find the perfect balance between a bee-centric design that truly made a healthier hive cavity, aesthetics for the beekeeper's apiary, and sustainable, local manufacturing. We're extremely pleased with the results, and we think your bees will be, too.

Warm stays warm. Cool stays cool.

Let's face it, the beehives we keep are unlike the tree cavities bees usually inhabit. In the All Season Roof we've incorporated years of research into a design that makes it easier for your bees to manage temperature and humidity year round. Whether it's a stifling hot summer or frigid winter, this roof dramatically reduces temperature and humidity fluctuation.

Innovation in Beehive Design

For over 14 years, the folks at Bee Built have been developing innovative beekeeping equipment and hive products with a focus on putting the bees' needs first - everything else is secondary. We consider the All Season Roof our greatest contribution yet toward healthier bee colonies.

Superior Temperature Retention

There's magic inside: Western red cedar construction, two-inch thick R8 natural hemp insulation, louvered vents, and sloped aluminum composite shingles all lead to the best temperature retention in a beehive roof. Whether your bees are using evaporative cooling to keep the hive cool in the summer, or clustering and shivering in the winter to keep warm, this roof works with their natural methods of temperature and humidity management.

43% Less Temperature Fluctuation

Fits Any Langstroth

No matter how well-loved, sun damaged, or mismatched, this roof will sit proudly atop your hive and make life easier for your bees.

Details

Waterproof, watertight, pest resistant, and easily wards off harsh weather. 

Adapts for the seasons, with copper anodized aluminum composite roofing material that absorbs heat in the Winter and a bright white side that reflects the sun rays in the Summer.

Natural hemp insulation and louvered vents keep your bees warm and dry in the winter, and cooler with less effort in the summer. 

Made from western red cedar for its superior insulating properties and resistance to rot. Not to mention it’s gorgeous and sustainably sourced in the Pacific Northwest. 

Stainless steel hardware to prevent rust, and self-drilling screws for added strength and ease of assembly.

The roof can accommodate a one gallon hive top feeder for easy feeding in the fall and spring.

Fits any 8-frame or 10-frame Langstroth hive. No inner cover is necessary, due to the provided duck canvas that creates a propolis barrier between the roof and the colony, while still allowing airflow. 

Last but not least, the roof is as beautiful as it is functional. We designed it for the bees’ benefit first, but we know you want your apiary to look great!

When the bees can spend less time keeping their hive at the optimal temperature, they are free to perform other essential hive tasks. This roof gives bees that freedom.
