Most people who take up beekeeping quit after just one season. If Flow Hives change that, it will change the whole industry.
The Flow Hive is non-daunting for a beginner because few purchases are needed and the cost is low, compared to starting a regular hive.
Because of its complexity, the Flow Hive costs more than a regular beginner’s hive.
With its standardized simplicity the Flow Hive prevents more of the mistakes and mishaps that beginners encounter with regular hives.
Early success with a hive depends mainly on skill and luck, and the Flow Hive can guarantee neither, so its early success rate will not be comparatively greater.
