I think it bares repeating that imo the flow hive is really not great. ignoring the extreme price, why put more plastic into a beehive? bees evolved to built comb themselves and its stupid to think your helping them at all by giving them plastic lookalikes when they would much rather just make their own. a hive is a living breathing entity and adding plastic and other man made things harms that.
leave the bees alone. we dont need to make beekeeping any more technological or pretty soon we’ll have fully automated metal beehives with touchscreens or something. don’t buy into the silicon valley-esque garbage.
