Beekeeping safely, do I need safety equipment with a Flow Hive?

Flow Hive technology drastically reduces the chance of being stung during harvest, however, beekeepers using the Flow system will still need to perform routine hive inspections to check for pests and diseases and to ensure their hive is healthy.

When opening a hive it is important to take the usual safety precautions, including using a smoker and a quality beekeeper suit.

Check out this Flow-sponsored safety pamphlet covering common beekeeping safety risks and first aid responses.

Flow technology eliminates almost all of the work associated with the honey extraction process, allowing more time to attend to the other more interesting aspects of being a beekeeper.
