I am a Newbie keeper! So much to learn and I am so excited about the flowhive!.
I do have a few questions that seem to be surfacing in my community of non-flow keepers who are so generously trying to help me get started. If anyone has insight as to the below questions I would be most grateful!!!
Our kit comes with one deep brood box but most non-Flow hive keepers in Ohio, USA use 2 deeps or 3 mediums . Please clearly explain why only one box and do I actually need 2 boxes.
If only one box is used, wouldn’t I have concerns about swarming due to the reduced brood area?
How do I manage the hive throughout the whole year?
Thanks so much and I am looking forward to meeting more of you!
