Flow™ Frames Set to Revolutionize the Way Honey Is Harvested

    This Flow™ hive has 3 Flow™ frames in the middle between 4 traditional honey frames. (Image: honeyflow.com)Honey draining from one frame of a Flow™ hive.

    If you want to start bee keeping, then this story is for you. It’s not as easy as it looks, with so many things that can cause CCD (colony collapse disorder). But the people at Flow™ have made it a lot easier to harvest honey from your hives with far less stress on the bees.

    Australian father-and-son bee keeping team Stuart and Cedar Anderson have developed a new type of frame, called a Flow™ frame. It allows the honey to flow out directly from the hive without the need to open it, and with minor disturbance to the bees.

    The Flow™ frames are designed to fit inside standard boxes. They are compatible with Langstroth size deep boxes, and are inserted into standard bee supers (boxes) in much the same way as standard frames, they say on their website.

    This promotional video shows you how the Flow™ hive works.

    Having had bees as a child, I think this is a great invention.

    This will save on buying a lot of equipment, save time in the harvesting process, and hardly disturb the bees at all.
