This is my second season with the flow hive and the bees don’t like them. Since I live in NE Ohio and need two full boxes for the bees to survive the winter I put the flow hive on in early August last year. After a couple of days I checked the side window and saw a lot of bees so that was great. A few days later I checked again and I only saw a few. A week later and thereafter when I checked, there weren’t any. Bummer! Then I read in the Forum that rubbing beeswax on the flow frames may help the bees accept them. So I did that this year when I added the flow frames in mid-July. Lo and behold the bees were in the flow frames for the next three months. That’s the good news. The bad news is they just walked around and in and out of the cells for three months and that’s all they did. There is virtually no honey in any of the seven frames! Well, ok, there are about 30 capped cells so maybe there is an ounce of honey. So my flow hive frames batting average is virtually zero. Speaking of an overall batting average, I’d like to know how many people that bought flow hives are getting honey. If it’s not at least 8 or 9 out of ten then this product should never have been marketed. It’s been a waste of my time and money the last two years. How can I trust it working next year? With the Flow Hive, the only thing I’m doing is providing a home for the bees to store two boxes of honey in traditional frames to use during the winter and some flow frames that provide a nice exercise room for the bees to walk around and stretch out. Although I’m happy to help the bees and nature, I would like to get some honey. If someone has an idea what to do to make a flow hive successful then let me know. Otherwise I’ll switch to the traditional way since it at least works and the bees will just have to do without the flow frame exercise room addition. I can’t take another year of nothing.
