8 Frame - Gabled Beehive Lid
Gabled beehive lids (sometimes called a pigeon roof) are not only attractive but help keep your beehive cooler in summer and dryer in winter. The pitched roof and end ventiliation provide extra ventilation for heat and moisture to escape. They also provide extra protection from the elements due to the roof overhang.
The lids are made from pine and come fully assembled.
Gabled roofs are generally used in conjunction with a hive mat or corwn board (not included) to prevent bees drawing honeycomb in the roof cavity
