The metal strip does need to be installed, as it provides structural strength to the Flow Super after most of the back side is cut away. It also covers up the gap made by the rebate in the brood box below, thus blocking bees from exiting through the back of the hive. We are providing the metal strip to people who order the Flow Hive box from us. The dimensions of the metal strip will be sent out to everyone who is intending to modify their own boxes.
