http://www.mahakobees.com PRACTICAL review of the FLOW HIVE ™.

 

This video is very different to most other videos about the Flow hive. We take a practical approach to this review, and ask questions. Important beekeeping questions, which no doubt every beekeeper that is interested in beekeeping also has on their mind. Will this flow hive perform as advertised? Is this new beehive really going to revolutionize the beekeeping industry? Is it suitable for new beekeepers and families as suggested by the Flow Hive team? Will new beekeepers have success with the flow frames and is this beehive as good as the inventors and Flow Hive manufactures claim? The quality of materials used, the honey harvest speed, the hygienic concerns during the flow hive honey harvest, Is it food grade? Will Small Hive beetles (SHB), wax moth, varroa, mites, and other pests be an issue? Will it withstand propolization and wax build up? And is the very high cost worth the investment?

 

Many legitimate questions that need to be answered. We recommend you take a look at the #Bee Vlog beekeeping video (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0oPKUxsQJUc) which reviews the Flow Hive beehive with the bees well being when overwintering and points out other considerations beekeepers need to keep in mind when considering purchasing and using this beehive in their apiary. It may save your honey bee colonies!

We present no conclusions and are open minded. We hope the beekeeping community can comment below on their experience with the flow frames and that beekeepers from all corners of the world can discuss this product with their apiary location and specific beekeeping goals in mind. We believe this to be an amazing invention that has the potential to be very beneficial once all concerns and issues raised by thousands of experienced beekeepers around the world are addressed. As with any new product, we hope this beehive continues to evolve and improve with each new version.

 

Thank you Flow Hive ™ for thinking outside the square, and bringing the Flow frames to life. We wish you all the best and hope this product will be beneficial to all bee colonies and beekeepers alike.

A beekeepers  review of a homemade heavy duty four frame electric honey extractor. Visit http://www.mahakobees.com/store.html if you need good quality extractors.

This beekeeping 101 video looks at a DIY homemade four frame honey extractor that can accommodate any honey frame sizes. From ideal honey frames to full depth frames. It has a built in speed controller, and is mostly made out of washing machine parts. It is belt driven, has a large food grade bucket with a standard beekeepers honey gate at the bottom of the extracting barrel. The stand is very heavy duty, and holds up very well even if the honey frames are uneven in size or weight. Extracting honey can be difficult without a fully automated and motorized honey extractor, and we found this one in a garage sale for a couple of hundred dollars. We did not build this extractor, but if you have, and are watching our videos, let us know and we will be happy to mention your name or link to you beekeeping website.

Hope you enjoy this short video. We will follow up with another video so you can see this four frame stainless steel motorized homemade beekeepers honey extractor in action, or also often referred to as a honey frame spinner.
