If this product shows as sold out in your region please try our Araucaria Brood Box, which is the same size as the western red cedar brood box. Read more on Araucaria timber here; or our Bee-Grade Brood Box—Same timber at a slightly lower grade.
You may choose to stain the Araucaria to match the colour of the cedar, then coat with some weatherproof sealant or alternatively you can get creative and paint the brood box as a feature.
Precision Manufacturing & Premium Timber
This brood box is crafted from premium Western Red Cedar, using precision manufacturing and paired with a set of 8 foundationless brood frames.
We decided to use Western red cedar (Thuja plicata) as it is a beautiful timber with a remarkably fine and stable grain structure, and is sustainably sourced in North America close to our major customer base, reducing transport mileage.
Timber included in this product is made from naturally grown resources - each box will be slightly different in character. Please see our FAQ for more information on our natural timber characteristics.
Safety, Care & Maintaining Your Flow Hive
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.
