By popular demand, these Flow Hive 2 brood boxes are exclusively available to Flow Hive 2 customers for pre-sale, with an estimated shipping date of June 2019. Manufactured in the same style as those included with our Flow Hive 2, these premium Western Red Cedar 8 frame Langstroth deep brood boxes can be used for brood, or as an additional conventional honey super.

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 for an 8 frame Langstroth hive, 6 Flow Frames are used to completely fill the super. This brood box is compatible with Flow Hive 2 – 6 frame or 8 frame Langstroth hive. 

 Pre-order your matching Flow Hive 2 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. The Flow Hive 2 Cedar brood box is not compatible with the wider Flow Hive Classic 7 (or 10 frame Langstroth hive).

WHAT'S INCLUDED

  1. Flow Hive 2 Cedar Brood Box

  2. 8 Brood Frames with comb guides

  3. Hardware for Brood Box and Frames

• Does not include bees.

• Ships flat packed ready for easy assembly.

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.

Sold Out?

We only have a limited number of these new season brood boxes available, so if this product shows as sold out in your region please try our Western Red Cedar brood box, which is the same size as the Flow Hive 2 brood box or our Bee-Grade brood box – same timber at a slightly lower grade.

 

Precision Manufacturing & Premium Timber

The Flow Hive 2 brood box is part of our first batch of 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 premium Western Red Cedar and paired with a set of 8 foundationless brood frames, this is premium brood box is perfect for adding to your hive as an additional brood box or conventional honey super.

We are using 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.

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.

WHAT OUR CUSTOMERS ARE SAYING

  • Just wanted to let you guys know my Flow Hive has performed better than expected.
    The old timers in my bee club had a bit of prejudice on the Flow Hive but my videos may be bring them to the dark side. This is my first year to keep bees so maybe being clueless helped. It was very easy to harvest honey and the girls loved the box.
    A kudos to the durability of the Flow Hive both my hives made it through TS Harvey with banana trees on top & 4ft flood water under the platforms.

  • 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.
