In summer, the white powder-coated steel keeps the awning cool and the beehive entrance shaded, reducing temperature at the entrance. Sheds rain and leaves from entering/blocking the entrance. Recessed side openings permit bearding in hot weather, and helps promote air circulation.
In winter, the awning protects the landing board from snow and ice buildup, maintaining ventilation and allowing bees to fly in flight weather.
Made of powder-coated 18 gauge cold-rolled steel, includes four (4) stainless steel screws. Fits 8- and 10-frame Langstroth hives. Made in USA.
