I’ve taken delivery and build my full Flow Hive Classic (after some extensive quality control issues, now resolved). I’ve joined my local BKA and one of the first suggestions was to increase space for the bees by getting additional supers.
Rather than having to keep shipping over from the states I thought I better start looking for box suppliers closer to home in the UK. Having gotten online is seems that there are many MANY sizes for the Langstroth standard. This page states and gives dimensions for over ninety sub species!
The closest to the Flow Hive I can see is the ‘8 Frame New Zealand Langstroth (New Metric Standard)’ with an outer width 505mm and outer length 353mm measurement.
Can anyone shed any light on whether this is correct Langstroth ‘standard’ and where to find a uk supplier for the boxes?
