Add an extra layer of insulation to help keep hive temperature and moisture consistent inside your Langstroth hive.

Borrowed from the Warre's quilt box design, this insulation box holds wood shavings that help wick moisture, and retain heat or cool depending on the season. Similar to a "Vivaldi Board" made by others, but includes the insulative western red cedar shavings.

Fully assembled.

Includes

  • Clear douglas fir insulation frame
  • Stainless steel mesh
  • 2 bags of cedar quilt material

Essential item

Great item for insulation and moisture control. My only two complaints: should include canvas or burlap liner to keep quilt material contained above the screen, and the wooden spacer bars below the screened layer are a welcomed addition, but need to be attached more solidly. I reinforced with drilled and countersunk screws.

Box OK - shavings too fine

The box was well-built – no issue. The wood shavings were very fine and a lot of it was just sawdust that fell through the screen at the bottom of the box.

Good Idea

This item is a great idea, and fits the hive well - but the shaving material leaves quite a bit to be desired. (no directions for placement/use included). Two bags of shavings came with the box order, and most of the material was overly fine dust. Thank goodness I filled the box before placing on the hive - as about an inch of fine particulate came through the mesh. I used both bags, and gave the box a good sifting to remove the dust - I am left with a good amount of insulation, but I would not use this type again. Cedar shavings + paper towels will be our next filler.
