I was prepared to accept his first video as enthusiasm led, ie caught up in the hype surrounding the behaus. However his latest effort leads me to conclude that the guy is a complete zealot ,blinded by his own sense of self importance, unable to comprehend the subtleties of the craft whilst assuming that his owning of a colony ,housed in a new /old fangled hive gives him authority to lecture and dismiss practices honed over generations by existing beekeepers whos' combined knowledge renders his puny activeties laughable .My old granny used to say "pride comes before a fall".
I've stayed out of all the comments so but I'll just say that after 3 years keeping bees they still never cease to amaze me and I have just about learnt how much I dont know and am unlikely to ever know.
I would guess that when the more serious problems hit, thats when you find out if you are a beekeeper or not.
Good luck to him and his type as you cannot stop them -- just get the baitboxes ready...
