These Flow Hive 2 Araucaria brood boxes are exclusively available to Flow Hive 2 customers.

Manufactured in the same style as those included with our Flow Hive 2 Araucaria, these Araucaria 8 or 10-frame Langstroth deep brood boxes can be used for brood, or as an additional conventional honey super.

Made in Australia from durable, sustainably sourced, Australian Araucaria timber, these brood boxes are the ideal addition to our Flow Hive 2 Araucaria kit.

What size do I need?

Confused about what size to get? Don't worry we get it! Our Flow Frames are slightly wider than traditional wooden brood frames, so less of them are required to fill the super in a hive in comparison to brood frames in the brood box.

  • For an 8 frame brood box, 6 Flow Frames are used to completely fill the super. Compatible with a Flow Hive 2 6 frame or 8 frame Langstroth hive.
  • For a 10 frame brood box, 7 Flow Frames are used to completely fill the super. Compatible with a Flow Hive 2 7 frame or 10 frame Langstroth hive. 

 

Pre-order your matching Flow Hive 2 Araucaria brood box today – but hurry, only a limited quantity available.

Note: There is a small sizing variance between these brood boxes and those included with our classic Flow Hives. To check for compatibility please find more information here.

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.

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

WHAT OUR CUSTOMERS ARE SAYING

  • My mentor asked me to help with his 1st Flow Hive harvest.
    He has been a bee keeper for 38 years and was very skeptical about the Flow Hive's. After seeing my Flow Hive working so well, he decided to purchase one as well.
    To say the least, he is very happy with how it does not bother the bee's  and such little cleanup involved since you don't need to use conventional extraction methods.
    So if he can convert to Flow Hives, anyone can.
