Making sure they have enough stores and are properly ventilated seems to be sufficient. It's split about 50/50 for and against wrapping. Condensation inside the hives is more of a problem than the cold.

A wind break is also helpful.

No excluder, a mouse guard, sufficient bees, sufficient stores and no empty boxes.
