Flow Frame Separate Delivery


#1

I received the complete wooden portion of my order on December 21 but I did not get the flow frames. When I look at my order it shows that they are shipped/received. I am confused as when I am supposed to receive these parts so I can complete the build of my order. Has anyone else had this issue with them being shipped separately?


#2

The Frames and Hive Box will arrive separately as they are made in 2 different countries - The frames will be with you soon don’t worry


#3

Thank you, I didn’t know this was going to happen and I have bees on the way! Hoping they get here before the bees! Do you know if I can track them separately?


#4

There is no panic you will not required the Frames until after the bees are settled - Your in the USA?

The Flow frames will only go on after the bee numbers have been built up and the Nectar is coming in.

Go to http://www.honeyflow.com/contact/p/3 and ask the team or back to your order and check from there

Thank you! I l’ll look into this!


#6

I did get an email ahead of time to let me know that there will be 2 separate deliveries


#7

Even if you have a Nuc on the way it will be some time before you actually need the flow frames. They will need to finish off the frames with wax on the 8 brood frames before they will likely bother with the flow

I received my Flow Frames yesterday, however I did not receive my Ceder Bee hive.

I am having the same issue. Waiting for the flow frames. No response from FlowHive.

Bees coming soon! :frowning:

Don’t panic ! Your new bees only need the lower brood box for awhile with the 8 wooden frames. They will be busy drawning out the wax cells for awhile.

Question for you. Where do you live ? Many regions like mine here east of Seattle use double brood boxes. I’d check with your local suppliers, clubs n other beekeepers in your area. See what system of hive boxes they use.

Here in cooler Washington State we mostly use the double brood box system so the honey supers ( Flow-Super) probably wouldn’t get use this first season at all. If you need the double system there. Check with Beethinking.com. They build the Flow-hive n made cedar boxes that match your new setup.

. Hope this info will be helpful. Also I have found reading a couple of good beekeeping books helpful n rewarding at easing my apprehensions.

Good luck n happy beekeeping,
Gerald
