Even the humble roof has benefitted from a re-think.

In normal use this 40mm thick design provides a high level of insulation, keeping the bees warm in the winter and cool under the summer sun.

However, in times of high nectar flow it can be inverted to provide an upper entrance. This technique is often used in Scandinavia.  The technique provides improved hive ventilation and direct access to the supers by the foragers. It can also be used to allow drones to escape if the queen has found her way into the supers and laid drone brood.
