This video explains the Quilting box in brief. It’s a simple piece of equipment that I recommend to keeping bees from Florida to Maine and even Alaska.
The basic idea: The quilt allows body moisture to escape by ventilating out the top of the hive while also maintaining colony warmth. The result is low-moisture buildup.
I have also included some pictures of how I have used my quilting box as a Top Hive Feeder as well.
