Insulation and the KTBH
« on: September 30, 2010, 05:18:05 PM »
When building a KTBH should I incorporate an insulation factor in to the hive? It wouldn't be hard to do but do I need it. I reside in Mid State South Carolina.

The top is the main place you need insulation.  I just put some styrofoam on top.
