CARE GUIDE
(Safety and care/maintenance guide)

Beekeeping suits and other personal protective equipment can offer excellent sting prevention, but are not 100 percent effective. It’s important new beekeepers exercise caution when tending to their hives and are comfortable with the fact that sooner or later, all beekeepers get stung.

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

To give the best in weather protection, it's important to paint your Araucaria Flow Hive with two coats of good quality outdoor paint.

How do Flow Frames work?

Watch the following video below to learn how the Flow Frames work.

Should I choose a 6 or a 7 frame hive?

In response to requests for a larger hive, we have created a 7 Frame Flow Hive that is compatible with 10 frame Langstroth equipment.

Beehives in the 10 frame Langstroth sizing are extremely popular in cold climates and with beekeepers who prefer to have an extra two frames for their colony in the brood box.

Having an additional Flow Frame in your super is a bonus for collecting more delicious Flow harvested honey!

Not sure which model is best for you? Check out this video

Are the Flow Frames made from BPA free plastic?

Plastic has been used in beehives as part of foundation for brood frames for many years. Our Flow Hives only feature the highest quality, foodgrade, BPA and BPS Free plastic in the Flow Super where the honey is stored. The bees complete the Flow Frame matrix and coat it with wax before adding their nectar to turn into honey. We supply and recommend foundationless brood frames to keep the brood nest as natural as possible for the bees.

How do I get bees?

Bees rarely find their way into empty beehive boxes, even though they are designed to be a perfect home for them.

There are a number of ways of starting a colony, from buying a package of bees, to receiving a hive split or catching a swarm.

We also have a range of videos and blogs to help you understand the different ways in which you can source bees for your new hive.

I have a small yard or rooftop, can I still have a hive?

Yes! Flow Hives are perfect for setting-up just about anywhere.

You will need enough space to access the back of the hive for easy harvesting and your bees will require a clear space at the front of the hive for their flight path.

You'll also need to check-in with local governing bodies to find out if there are any regulations that you need to be aware of.

Here are some of our top tips on where to set up your beehive.

Is beekeeping a good family activity?

Yes! Getting set up with a Flow Hive is a great interactive family activity as our revolutionary honey harvesting technology removes the need for additional harvesting equipment, making this enjoyable hobby much more accessible.
Harvesting honey together as a family is an incredible experience and enough to entice all members of your family to learn about bees which are completely fascinating! Don’t be surprised if you find yourself with extra hands on deck to help out with brood inspections ;)

Make sure you have some extra suits on hand – we have protective wear in all sizes to accommodate all members of the family.

Still have questions? We'd love to hear from you.

Does the Flow Hive work in extreme temperatures?

Yes! The Flow Hive is successfully in use in all climates wherever beekeeping is possible, from the hot Queensland summers to the cold Tasmanian winters.

Is there any safety information I need to be aware of?

Beekeeping is a fascinating hobby which when approached with knowledge, skill and dedication can be incredibly rewarding.

It is important to understand some basic safety guidelines to ensure that your beekeeping experience is a safe and positive one.

Beekeeping suits and other personal protective equipment can offer excellent prevention against bee stings but are not 100 percent effective. It’s important new beekeepers exercise caution when tending to their hives and are comfortable with the fact that sooner or later, all beekeepers get stung.
