One size fits most.

Safety

Please be aware that the Flow Veil is not a complete beekeeping suit and does not offer suitable protection for opening your hive or handling an aggravated colony.

Beekeeping is a labour of love. As with all animal husbandry, it’s a pastime which requires knowledge, skill and dedication and which carries with it inherent risks. Sooner or later, all beekeepers get stung. Some people have severe allergies to bee stings, so please be aware of the potential hazards when considering whether beekeeping is right for you.

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

WHAT OUR CUSTOMERS ARE SAYING

  • All my acquaintances in the bee community said they wouldn't take to the plastic flow frames. They were wrong.

  • I need to take a Minute to thank the Flow Hive team for coming up with such and amazing Honey Super.
    It has been our second year with The Flow Hives and it's just Amazing how the girls don't Evening know you are drawing the honey out. They don't get injured or stress and so much LESS work than removing a super and cutting the wax cappings off each side of the frames and spinning all the frames and let's not forget the clean up. We have harvested the Flow Hive twice this summer and the girls are just working to fill the frames up again.
    Of course you still need to do regular Brood Box inspections, which always tells a bee keeper a whole lot of info.

    Flow Hive Is The WAY TO GO .

    Thanks Again Flow Hive.

  • I've kept bees before so I have a general idea of what's involved, and like so many people, I've hated disrupting their cosy home and having to kill so many bees to get at the honey.
    I have a million thank yous to the man and his dad for building these hives.
    Sheesh, I'm crying again. It's just so wonderful.
