I have a couple of suggestions for your Flow Hive.
Actually we do already use this “tips” with our Dadant Blatt hives.
- We attach the bottom board to the brood box like the following picture. It is much easier to move the hive then.
- We use a “portcullis” (I don’t know how to translate it in english) at the hive entrance, you can remove it in summer or close it in winter or during a robbing to reduce the entrance.
- It could be useful to add an “angolar bracket” between the brood box and the super, so the entire hive would be more stable during the movement.
