Frames for nuc box to fit flow brood box


#1

Hi all,

I’m a brand new beekeeper. Trying to learn a lot as quickly as possible. I’m trying to figure out the dimensions of the foundation less frames for the flow brood box so that I can buy some frames for a nuc box now as we are trying to set up some bait hives before our flow hive arrives. Hope this makes sense. Thanks in advance for the help!

The Flow hive brood box takes standard Langstroth Deep Frames, like these:

You can use foundation if you wish, in which case I would get my frames from Mann Lake if you are in the US - great price, good design and decent quality. Most nucleus boxes in the US are sized for Langstroth Deep Frames, although Mediums are available (but rare).

Hope that helps, feel free to ask as many questions as you want, and peruse the Forum as much as you can - lots of good info here.
