When closing the bees for winter, you also need to consider ventilation. The age old match stick method still works. Whilst you may wish to put insulation over the crownboard, sliding match sticks underneath it allows good ventilation all round the top, gently dissipating the moisture, and the space being insufficient for the bees to get through.
