I’m a new beekeeper in Surrey (UK), and am thoroughly enjoying almost everything so far. Apart from the occasional sting, my least favourite part of beekeeping is the honey harvesting process, and I thought that Flow would be the answer to my prayers…
I have 2 Paynes national polystyrene hives and wondered if anyone has the same and used a flow super with them?
If so, I have a few questions…
- Do the Flow supers fit on top and work with the poly roof etc? Would I need to manufacture some sort of filler to hold the roof on securely to the smaller Flow super body? (Smaller as the wooden super wall is thinner than the polystyrene super wall, I assume?)
- Is the weight of the wood, plastic and metal in the flow super supported well by the poly brood box? I am concerned that when full of honey there could be some compression of the polystyrene.
Thanks in advance,
