I have copied the below from a local supplier of bees for 2019, I’m looking at various local suppliers and would just like some advice for a new bee keeper. After watching the Flow Frame Videos on line I have seen a couple of different ways of getting the bees into a new hive, so my question is do I order Langstroth Frames or the wooden box with the queen in a cage, The Flow Frame video online shows the queen in the cage being placed into the new brood box and the other bees are then shaked/banged into the brood box, wouldn’t it be easier to place Langstroth frames into the brood box on the Flow Hive?
