Hi i'm from Austria, Styrofoam Hive


I will change a Styrofoam Hive to use with the Flow-System!
Who has already bee booty a Styrofoam of you equipped with the flow frame?
The name of the prey is ‘franc prey’.
Emergency, there is a wooden frame for this loot.

N.g. Wolfgang


G’day Wolfgang. Converting a poly to Flow will be messy.

You are better off having a wooden super which is removed in winter anyway.

I have poly and wood so will be doing something similar. Poly (Styrofoam) hives are better for our winters as they keep warmer.


I would just set the wood super on top of the styrofoam brood boxes and leave it at that. I would pull the supers off for winter.


I also think that would be the better solution!
I’m a Styrobeute with matching wooden frame that I retrofits use.
thank you for your contributions.



I Shell use a 10 Frame Honeybox, 4x flowframes in the middle and 2 Waxframes on the outer side


I have another solution for my problem. I’ll take a perch prey of wood and build the honey room with a half-width frame for 4 honey flows.
My dealer is also producer and also builds special sizes. :yum:

I have 7 FlowFrames ordered for 2 hives.



I’m a Styrofoam Flow beekeeper too! I am in Perth Western Australia and have a 2 storey 6 frame Lyson nucleus hive with 4 Flow frames in the super. It produces about 2kg honey per week this season. The 10 frame Lyson Poly hive has 7 frames in the super. It is in a different location and is not travelling as well! Still looking for the honey flow to start from our local Jarrah forest.
