Still have questions? We'd love to hear from you.

Does the Flow Hive work in really hot or really cold temperatures?

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

I have a small yard or rooftop, can I still have a 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.

How do Flow Frames work?

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.

How will I learn about beekeeping?

Beekeeping is a fascinating and rewarding hobby, one in which the learning never ends.

We have a swarm of resources available to support all new beekeepers, including:

  • - Beginner beekeeper online course thebeekeeper.org. You get one month free with the purchase of your Flow Hive.
  • - Answers to frequently asked questions
  • - Weekly Facebook live where Cedar answers beekeeping questions
  • - A community forum with experienced Flow Beekeepers on hand to offer support

- Plus a knowledgeable support team on hand to answer your questions.

Learning from experienced people in your local area is invaluable so it's also helpful to connect with a local beekeeping club, beekeeping course or mentor for support.

Where are Flow Hives made?

Flow Hives are made in Australia using quality timbers from sustainable sources. We work closely with our suppliers who are all Forest Stewardship Council (FSC) or Program for the Endorsement of Forest Certification (PEFC) certified

Our Flow Frames are an artificial foundation from BPA- and BPS-free food grade plastic, manufactured right here in Australia.

Workers are respected and valued in certified safe work environments and are employed under fair trade conditions.

The Flow Hive is invented by father-son duo Stuart and Cedar Anderson of Northern Rivers, NSW.

Is there any safety information I need to be aware of?

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.

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