What's in the Box?

Your Questions Answered

The Flow Super is not a complete hive and is designed to be added to an existing hive. You will need a brood box, base, queen excluder, inner cover and roof. If you are getting set-up for the first time, we recommend a complete Flow Hive as this comes with everything that you need.

It’s important to add a slope towards the rear of the hive (3º is optimal) for harvesting. This can be added to your existing base, or you can prop up the front of the hive at harvest time. You will also need to consider how your roof fits over the Flow Super to allow access to the Flow key access cover. The Flow Hive roof has a modified cutout to allow easy access, however, using a flat roof that sits above the inner cover can also work.

Beekeeping is a fascinating and rewarding hobby, where the discoveries are endless. Plus the honey really is an amazing bonus!

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.

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! The Flow Hive is successfully in use in all climates wherever beekeeping is possible, from the hot Australian summers to the cold Alaskan winters.

Beekeeping is a fascinating hobby which when approached with knowledge, skill and dedication can be incredibly rewarding.

It is important to understand some basic safety guidelines to ensure that your beekeeping experience is a safe and positive one.

Beekeeping suits and other personal protective equipment can offer excellent prevention against bee stings but are not 100 percent effective. It’s important new beekeepers exercise caution when tending to their hives and are comfortable with the fact that sooner or later, all beekeepers get stung.
