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 April 2019.

Made in Australia from durable, sustainably sourced Western Red Cedar, these brood boxes are the ideal addition to our Western Red Cedar Flow Hive 2 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 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. 

 Preorder 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.

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

WHAT OUR CUSTOMERS ARE SAYING

  • Wishing you guys a very happy 3rd birthday. 

    My husband bought me a one day beekeeping workshop as an early birthday present. I was a great day, learnt heaps, and got a one-on-one day with John from Eezybeez. He came over to visit my hive an meet my bees. He tells me I have happy bees.   No honey yet but it's going to “bee” worth the wait… Loving my Flow Hive.

  • We absolutely love our Flow Hive here in Washington State. Thank you for such a great product. I have quite a few friends who are very interested in bees. I tell them "Flow is the only way to go!"

    Makes it easy on you and the bees.

  • I had seem some speculation that the Flow Hive might not work in colder areas.
    I am a beekeeper from Alaska, and I can tell you it works GREAT!
    Here are the results of our first collection. This was not an ideal year due to so much rain in the region (Kenai Peninsula).
    I took 20 minutes to drain a frame and this is the result of emptying 2 of the frames ~ 1 gallon of honey ready to go!
    It was a cool day….in the mid 60s (Fahrenheit)….but of course the honey was coming warm from the hive (~90degrees)

    This is just the COOLEST invention.

    Thank you!!!

  • From Go to Flow in under three months! I have had great success with the Flow Hive- harvested four frames for 12 kg of honey.

    Read, study, use the Flow Forum, follow instructions and you won't have problems putting the Flow Hive together and getting bees to work happily and harvesting with no stress.
