I am the new owner of a Flow hive 2+ 6 frame. I’ve been reading a lot in the forum and I have a couple newbie questions so here goes:
Upon reading my assembly instructions it says I need four additional Langstroth frames to fill my super. It does not tell me a size, i.e. deep frame, medium, etc. I realize I could measure the two I have to build but the build starts shortly (very scared).
I want to keep my hive natural color and I cannot find a non-toxic finish. I purchased a clear oil based spar urethane for outside only. With a couple days to air out is this acceptable?
Queen reducer not included. Any suggestions on a specific kind or brand?
Feeding system for bees. I’ve seen many mentioned throughout forum. Would like to know easiest method for a newbie starting her first hive?
Thank you so much whomever reads/answers these annoying questions.
