What is the cell size of a Flow Frame?
In: Frequently Asked Questions Viewed: 16,670 times

Flow Frames use a 5.8mm cell width.

We experimented with a range of cell sizes and measured a lot of natural comb.

When bees make cells specifically to store honey they often make much larger cells. As Flow Frames are designed for honey only, we chose a larger cell size. We also wanted the queen to be less interested in laying in the frames for those who experiment with no excluder.

The size we chose is far too big for worker brood and just smaller than drone brood.
