Setting up a Langstroth hive in Scotland


#1

Hi all! New here

Looking at the price of the complete 6 flow hive is about £500 delivered.
If i just bought the 6 flow with box for £293, and then add a roof and legs myself for about £65 (£358 total)?



regards.

Dexter’s right. The bees need somewhere to live and waggle …

I only use 4 cement besser blocks & two pieces of wood as a stand. I have to keep my hives high enough so cane toads can’t get to the bees. I always thought foundation was part of the full flow hive but wondered how they would get the wax through customs. So it appears that the foundation is not included?

I will be using a Langstroth poly hive to house my bees during this coming winter. I will get my complete Flow Hive in December. So it won’t be until the spring that I will use the Flow. I might just put it on top of the poly hive brood box…as you would with any super…instead of transferring the brood over. I think they do really well in poly…which might be a good choice for you in Scotland where the winters are colder and damper. A complete poly hive from Wynne Jones is about £75.00 or thereabouts.
