Hi Folks, I’m in Adelaide South Australia western suburbs.
This base was recommended to me by my commercial beekeeper.
Just wondering if anyone else has used this base and if so your thoughts on its pro’s and con’s.
Currently fitted to my traditional hive two years ago.
1 - This base has three entrances each can be fully open, partially open or closed.
2 - It also has two trays that can be removed or left partial open.
I found the removable inspection trays handy to inspect for wax moth larvae. At times our summers peak in the high 30* C for a few days so removing the trays during those times helped ventilate the hive ( in my opinion). Our winter is generally mild so the trays are just left in place.
My flow hive is in its first season so am thinking of installing this next spring to it.
Anyone else using these - thoughts please.
