Yes you do need to be more careful with queen cells containing larvae,but these are ripe cells,fully formed queens just about to emerge,so much more robust at this stage.

I would say that this lad is just doing a job that he is not realy interested in and as such does not care, and more than likley after doing several thousand, say got into a bit of a devil may care attitude, what does make me laugh is because of this video i now will never ever get bees from these people as i know them to be treated poorly
