Dispatches in 1-2 working days.


Just like the brood boxes that come with an Araucaria Flow Hive Classic, these boxes can be used for brood, or as an extra conventional honey super.

Made in Brisbane from durable, local FSC sustainably sourced Araucaria (Hoop Pine), these precision laser cut brood boxes will put your average pine box to shame and are the ideal addition to an Araucaria Flow Hive Classic kit.

Constructed from 21mm Australian, FSC Certified Araucaria (Hoop Pine), and featuring laser cauterised finger joints for maximum strength.

The brood box does not come with the observation windows of a Flow Super. 

This item is available in both 6 and 7 Flow frame size (equivalent to 8 Frame Langstroth and 10 Frame Langstroth size).

6 Frame (8 Frame Lang): Supports 8 wooden standard 9 1/8-inch (232mm) deep Langstroth frames. Used for Araucaria 6 Frame Flow Hive Classic, Araucaria Super 3 and Super 6

7 Frame (10 Frame Lang): Supports 10 wooden standard 9 1/8-inch (232mm) deep Langstroth frames. Used for Araucaria 7 Frame Flow Hive Classic, Araucaria Super 4 and Super 7

Buy with or without brood frames.

 Does not include bees.

• Ships flat packed ready for easy assembly, with screws included.

• Does not include assembly instructions. Please find these here. 

 

NOTE: It is possible to stack this product with either our Western Red Cedar or Araucaria products. 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.

This brood box has a minor timber width difference to the one included with the Flow Hive 2. If you have Flow Hive 2 in Cedar, you can find a matching brood box for this product here.

AUSTRALIAN ARAUCARIA (HOOP PINE)

Crafted from sustainably harvested Australian Araucaria (Hoop Pine), using precision laser manufacturing.

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.

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.

Our unique Flow 3-layer mesh beekeeper suits provide the best available sting prevention and are purpose designed for functionality.
