The stiffened hessian crown cover is put on top of the top bars of the upermost box of the Warré Hive.  The bees control ventilation by opening or closing the holes in the hessian using propolis.  It is recommended to replace the stiffened hessian cover on a yearly basis (in late summer after harvesting any honey).
