Screen Inner Cover | Optimize Hive Ventilation


Notify me when back in stock

Maximize hive airflow and control temperature with our Screen Inner Cover. Achieve optimal hive ventilation with our high-quality screen inner covers!

Features of our amazing Screen Inner Cover:

  • Sturdy wooden frame
  • Threaded wire mesh keeps bees  out
  • Available for beehives of all sizes


    Use our screened inner cover to allow air to move freely throughout your beehives during the hottest months of the year and when transporting your hive. The wire mesh is not only threaded tight enough to prevent your bees from leaving the hive; it also will keep other insects from getting inside. These covers are available for 5-frame, 8-frame, and 10-frame beehives. When you need to provide ventilation in your hive, simply place the screen inner cover in place of the inner cover. Make sure you only ventilate your hive on sunny days; you don't want to allow rainwater to enter the hive from the top. If you're looking for an enclosed inner cover, head here. We also sell wire mesh on its own if you need to replace a damaged screened inner cover.

    Very well made

    Cure for hot days and the dreaded bee beard

    I prefer my bees out foraging or inside working taking care of the Queen. Not to mention pulling comb chasing those dreaded beetles keeping the food stuffs clean etc. I don’t like seeing a beard. Blythwood had The best quality Wooden Ware Period. And the people there are so nice and helpful. Go see for yourself

    Excellent Workmanship

    Screened inner covers will work great to relieve summer heat and work well in winter with a candy brick shim and moisture board.
