    Sticky: Re: EZ-Flow Beehive, boom or bust?

    In regard to the slope in the bottom board rather than the frames, that is correct. My suggestion was to simply have folks tilt their hives back at time of harvest since it's not that difficult. If...

    Sticky: Re: Extractor-less honey by Flow Hive

    The metal flashing is to prevent you from cutting yourself on the screen that attaches at the back. The bottom board is sloped backwards to help honey flow out of the frames, which means the entrance...

    Sticky: Re: Extractor-less honey by Flow Hive

    The frames can accept plastic foundation easily. They do come with wooden starter strip inserts to encourage straight combs.

    Sticky: Re: Extractor-less honey by Flow Hive

    There are a lot of videos out there of Flow customers and their new hives/frames. Obviously only those in the southern hemisphere, aside from Michael Bush and a few others who got them to test in...

    Sticky: Re: Flow Hive, Firsthand Experience

    I know the Flow team is working round-the-clock to keep up with customer inquiries. I just figured I'd do my part here on Beesource since I'm not sure if any of them monitor it! I can tell you from...

    fivekai,

    I hear you and I've seen the pictures sent so far. We ship many thousands of hives each year and while the boxes often look great, it's the shifting of the parts within the box that...

    Sticky: Re: Extractor-less honey by Flow Hive

    They recommend using a queen excluder for this reason to prevent brood in the Flow frames. Due to the size/depth of the cells, it seems that the queen is more inclined to lay drones in the Flow...

    Re: Bees trapped under hive roof

    It's pretty common on hot days for bees to beard on top of the bars under the gabled roof in our hives. I don't worry too much about it. If you've got a screened bottom, you could try adjusting that....

    Re: Bee Thinking on "Shark Tank"

    I definitely had a plan, and explained it clearly and thoroughly when I was there. However, I filmed for 45 minutes or so, but they only show 7. So they had to cut something. We would have used a lot...

  23. Re: You can't teach an old, frame hive beekeeper, new tricks

    I only said generally because I've never seen a bar design that ALWAYS produces straight combs. This is, of course, because there's another factor: the bees. You can, indeed, look through many past...
