Brood Box - Cedar
This really is a revolution. You can see into the hive, see when the honey is ready, and take it away in such a gentle way.
Backyard beekeeper for 40 years
In 2014 I had the pleasure of testing the Flow Frames. The bees quickly accepted them and, in less than two weeks, capped 40 pounds of honey. It was quite exciting to see the first bit of honey appear at the outlet, then make its way down the tube into the jar. Mesmerising.

Western Red Cedar Brood Box
Just like the brood boxes that come with a Flow Hive Classic, these Super Bee Boxes can be used for brood, or as an extra honey super.
Made in the USA from durable, sustainably sourced western red cedar, these basic boxes will put your average radiata pine box to shame and are the ideal addition to a western red cedar Flow Hive Classic kit
The Super Bee Box does not come with the observation windows of a Flow Super, and available either with or without standard Langstroth frames.
Constructed from ¾-inch (19mm) North American lumber, and featuring finger joins for maximum strength, the box is built to take 8 wooden standard 9 1/8-inch (232mm) deep Lang frames.
Apply a couple of coats of oil or sealant and these should last many years in all kinds of terrible weather.
Timber included in this product is made from naturally grown resources - each box will be slightly different in character.
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.
NOTE: the brood box only fits a Flow Hive or Super Classic 6 and does not fit a Classic 7 Super.
