Brood Box - Araucaria

Just like the brood boxes that come with our Flow Hive Classic Araucaria, these boxes can be used for brood, or as extra conventional honey supers.

Made in Brisbane, Australia from durable, local, FSC sustainably sourced Araucaria (Hoop Pine), precision laser-cut, and featuring finger-joints for maximum strength, these premium brood boxes are an ideal addition to a Flow Hive Classic Araucaria– and will put your average radiata pine box to shame. 

Sizing:

  • 8 frame sizing is the equivalent to an 8 frame Langstroth deep box
    (fits 8 standard 9 1/8-inch, 232mm frames)

  • 10 frame sizing is the equivalent to an 10 frame Langstroth deep box
    (fits 10 standard 9 1/8-inch, 232mm frames)


We recommend you paint Araucaria brood box with non-toxic exterior paint
in order to last in the harsh weather that bee hives can be subject to.

NOTE: It is possible to stack this product with either our Western Red Cedar or Araucaria products.

Precision Manufacturing & Premium Timber

This box is made using precision laser manufacturing from sustainably harvested Australian Araucaria - also known as Hoop Pine.

Araucaria is a premium Australian native cabinet timber, highly regarded for its stability & durability. To ensure it lasts a long time outdoors, two good coats of quality weatherproof sealant such as exterior house paint or varnish is a must. You can be as creative with the paint job as you like!

All images are for illustrative purposes - actual product may vary slightly.

Timber included in this product is made from naturally grown resources - each hive will be slightly different in character. Please see our FAQ for more information on our natural timber characteristics.

 

 

Safety, Care & Maintaining Your Brood Box

Apply a coat or two of timber sealant to bring out the lustre of this beautiful timber, and help it last even longer.

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.

  • A few years ago my husband decided he'd like to try his hand at beekeeping. His grandfather had all of the equipment but hadn't kept bees for about 5 years.
    He organised to get a nucleus hive from a local apiarist but he never received the call and this was really a blessing in disguise. About 2 years ago I visited a place that had one of your hives on display & showed it to my father. As huge honey fans (he & I) he decided he'd give beekeeping a go & looked into your product. Dad's pretty technologically challenged (hence why I'm emailing you) so my husband looked up your webpage & watched some videos & showed Dad & he decided to take the leap & buy one of your hives.
    We weighed up the costs & realised your hives are definitely better value than buying the rest of the harvesting equipment & having to harvest the honey.
    So it became a joint venture between my Dad (who has the space & fruit trees & gumtrees etc) & my husband (who is happy to read every piece of information they need).
    After their first harvest, they were so amazed & impressed with how easy everything was & the quality of the honey that Dad has now bought 5 more boxes (now 5 in total including the most recent which is yet to get bees in it).
    They can't speak highly enough of your hives & love that they can approach the hives & harvest the honey or just check on how the frames are filling without disturbing the bees.
    It's fantastic! We are loving every bit of honey we get.
