My bee mentor, Medo, told me that in the cold days of April (here in Chicago) to put a layer of newspaper, in between the inner cover and outer cover. The heat rising from the cluster of bees will stay inside instead of dissipating through the outer cover. Now that the temperatures have hit the 70s I have taken out the newspaper. I haven’t seen this tip anywhere else.
