* frame entrance reducer

Does Flow Hive have a 8 frame entrance reducer? I can’t find one…

Hello and welcome to the Flow forum! :wink:

You can easily make one yourself. Take a bunch of paint stirrer sticks, or craft sticks, cut them to the length you want and glue them together with PVA glue. Make sure that the stack wedges tightly into the entrance of the hive, or the bees will push them out!

Don’t overthink it. A bit of dressed timber and a nail does the job. You then slide the timber to give the entrance size you want.
