NOTE: There a slight dimensional difference between our timber types, however, it is possible to stack this product with either our Western Red Cedar or Araucaria products. Please read this FAQ for further information. Langstroth sizing can vary up to a few mm so depending on the timber width of your existing hive, these brood boxes may not sit completely flush, however, this won’t impair functionality.
Precision Manufacturing & Premium Timber
Australian grown, designed and manufactured, the Flow Hive 2 Araucaria Brood Box is part of our in-house manufacturing, using precision laser cutting.
This allows us to focus on quality control and ensure the highest levels of sustainability throughout the process, and also gives us the ability to innovate more quickly.
Crafted from sustainably harvested Australian Araucaria (also known as Hoop Pine) and paired with a set of 8 or 10 foundationless brood frames, this is premium brood box is perfect for adding to your hive as an additional brood box or conventional honey super!
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 is a must. You can be as creative with the paint job as you like!
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 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.
