Watch the following video below to learn how the Flow Frames work.
In response to requests for a larger hive, we have created a 7 Frame Flow Hive that is compatible with 10 frame Langstroth equipment.
Beehives in the 10 frame Langstroth sizing are extremely popular in cold climates and with beekeepers who prefer to have an extra two frames for their colony in the brood box.
Having an additional Flow Frame in your super is a bonus for collecting more delicious Flow harvested honey!

Plastic has been used in beehives as part of foundation for brood frames for many years. Our Flow Hives only feature the highest quality, foodgrade, BPA and BPS Free plastic in the Flow Super where the honey is stored. The bees complete the Flow Frame matrix and coat it with wax before adding their nectar to turn into honey. We supply and recommend foundationless brood frames to keep the brood nest as natural as possible for the bees.
How do I get bees?
Bees rarely find their way into empty beehive boxes, even though they are designed to be a perfect home for them.
There are a number of ways of starting a colony, from buying a package of bees, to receiving a hive split or catching a swarm.
We also have a range of videos and blogs to help you understand the different ways in which you can source bees for your new hive.
Yes! Flow Hives are perfect for setting-up just about anywhere.
You will need enough space to access the back of the hive for easy harvesting and your bees will require a clear space at the front of the hive for their flight path.
You'll also need to check-in with local governing bodies to find out if there are any regulations that you need to be aware of.
Here are some of our top tips on where to set up your beehive.
Yes! Getting set up with a Flow Hive is a great interactive family activity as our revolutionary honey harvesting technology removes the need for additional harvesting equipment, making this enjoyable hobby much more accessible.

Bee suits are designed to be worn slightly baggy over your normal clothing, so it’s best to choose a slightly larger size than you would normally wear.
Be sure to give yourself plenty of room to move around with additional length for movement – ankles and wrists need to remain covered when you’re crouching, bending or stretching.
You do not want the suit to be tight fitting – it’s this loose fitting material that offers sting prevention.
