Inner Covers


Our propolis encouraging inner covers have unsurpassed durability. Using 7/8" lumber and 3/8" plywood afforded us the extra depth to add 30 longitudinal grooves for the bees to propolize.

Our inner cover dimensions are 16 1/4" x 19 7/8" so that they are compatible with our premium hive bodies, as well as standard Langstroth equipment.


As with all our woodware, we use Titebond III glue on all our joints. Our inner covers also get stapled around the entire perimeter as well, ensuring the inner cover will last and last.


While most inner covers use rabbet joints we use lap joints. Why? Because a lap joint applies pressure evenly to both parts of the frame, while rabbet joints allow one part of the frame to twist and eventually fail.
