Flow Hives are kept in a variety of locations – from small urban areas such as balconies, rooftops and suburban backyards to large rural properties.

The Flow Hive has made backyard beekeeping so much easier as you no longer need extra room and equipment to harvest your honey.

When determining if you can fit a hive in your location, you need to consider giving your bees a clear space at the front of the hive to enter and exit and you will need enough room to access the back of the hive for harvesting and hive inspections.

It’s important to check with your local council's regulations on urban beekeeping, and consider proximity to neighbours when locating your hive. If they are very close and you think they might have some concerns, it’s worth talking to them first. The offer of an occasional jar of delicious local honey might sweeten things!
