Hi Wayne, welcome to the forum. Many new owners of flow hives have issues with the bees not taking to the super when it is time to install that. Common advice revolves around putting wax in the frames, and Jeff H has a few tricks too. I bought a block of bees wax and used a hair drier to soften it and to then rub the wax in. That got the bees interested after a long period of avoiding the super.

i know i study up on flowhive and seen cedar anderson recomend puting burr comb on flowframes for the bees to go up thare to work the frams
