Best time of year to transfer bees 🐝 to FlowHive?


Is there a best time of year to transfer our ladies :honeybee: to a FlowHive?

I’m in New Zealand :new_zealand: so we are just about to hit summer and the girls are busy busy in Langstroth hives filling the 2nd honey :honey_pot: super.

I have a FlowHive on order which will hopefully arrive in the next couple of weeks.

What’s the best time to transfer the girls over to the FlowHive? Should I wait until after harvest or not?

Thanks in advance for replies.


I wouldn’t wait. Put them straight in.


Just stick the flow super on your brood box. Job done.
