Hello - Flow Hives have been sold out of the Flow Hive foundationless frames with comb guides so I was wondering if anyone can tell me where I could pick some up in the Northern Calif area just below Sacramento, as I need some now. I’ve seen unassembled frames being sold in a couple bee stores fairly close by, but they don’t have the comb guide. Is there a way to substitute something for the comb guide and also, which type of frame (I see wedge top and groove top but have no idea what that means) would I buy for my 10 frame deep?
I glued in a paint stirrer (like you get with your paint at lowes) that I split lengthwise in half. Or, you could buy some foundation and cut it into strips.
Do you buy your extra frames in the bee supply stores? If yes, can you tell me which I should get for foundationless frames…the choices are wedged top or grooved top? I have only used the Flow frames, so I don’t know which of those I would buy.
Groove top and then I glued the strip of paint stirrer into the groove. Any bee supply will have them.
Thanks for that info!
