Interested in bee keeping. I’d like to use a flow hive for my first hive to make honey harvest easier.
Not entirely sure what type of bees I’d like to get. Currently leaning towards Carniolan bees. But if anyone has suggestions for highly docile bees, I’d love to hear them.
I’m confused about the different models? What are the differences between them?
Also, based on the reading I’ve done, bees prefer natural combs as opposed to the plastic ones in the flow hive. Can you take the plastic combs out of the frame and allow them to build the combs themselves? Or would that affect the way the hive functions and make the honey not be able to flow out properly?
