You cannot harvest wax from a Flow Frame. Honey comes out of the Flow Frames free from wax and ready for the table.
All the wax stays in the hive and the bees reuse it. Bees use about 7kg honey to make 1kg of wax, so this aspect of the Flow system can improve your hive’s rate of honey production.
To enable harvesting of wax we offer a Hybrid Flow Hive and Flow Hybrid Supers that contain both Flow Frames and traditional frames. This allows you to harvest both wax and honeycomb from a Flow Super.
