I couldn’t find this issue posted anywhere so far.
On receiving my Flow Hive I decided to get a different queen excluder - a wire one that was more solid and less likely to ‘bounce’ bees off if it gets propolised to the brood box and needs unsticking.
I bought a Langstroth size wire queen excluder and when it turned up it is larger than the flow hive. On investigation, am I right in thinking the Flow Hive is an 8 Frame Langstroth size?
Is this not a standard size in the UK? Most places seem to just state ‘Langstroth’ as the size and not offering 8 or 10 frame options.
Any recommendations for where to get hold of components that fit the Flow Hive (UK online stores?)
