Just like the brood boxes that come with our Araucaria Flow Hive Classics, these boxes can be used for brood, or as an extra conventional honey super.
Made in Australia from durable, local FSC sustainably sourced Araucaria, these precision laser cut brood boxes feature finger joints for maximum strength and are the ideal addition to a Flow Hive Classic 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 Classic 6 frame or 8 frame Langstroth beehive.
- For a 10 frame brood box, 7 Flow Frames are used to completely fill the super. Compatible with a Flow Hive Classic 7 frame or 10 frame Langstroth beehive.
Need an extra brood for your Flow Hive 2?
This brood box has a minor timber width difference to the one included with the Flow Hive 2. If you have Flow Hive 2 Araucaria, you can find a matching brood box for this product here.
For Flow Hive 2 Cedar matching brood boxes can be found here.
NOTE: It is possible to stack this product with either our 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. Learn more about adding brood boxes with different wood types here.

TIMBER - 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.
