I am currently a meliponist but I really want to keep backyard honey bees in a residential area. I live in Cairns and we have a tropical climate, I was wondering if anyone had experience using a flow hive in this environment. Local beekeepers say those they know who have tried it haven’t had much success - issues with rot etc. I was wondering if there were any success stories from tropical climates, which flow hive you have and what you did to care for it in the wet tropics?
Many thanks in advance
