Yeah, I see from your limited posts, that you don't even have a TBH or a Warre hive...to which I thought your comments may be coming from.
I think I may of keyed in your assessment of other beekeepers in the general statement that you make regarding how little beekeepers actually know about BEES. I thought it perhaps a bit arrogant, and a bit narrow minded, since it was coming from an experience standpoint of reading ONE book, but knew that was probably wrong of me to assume. So I ask of your experience.
But please do humor me....you mention that bees can not hear vibrations if comb is in a frame. (a valid issue and a worthy point to discuss). Myself, knowing that nothing we keep bees in comes close to the dynamics of a feral colony (waves, curves, attachments, etc.) and each has it's own flaws when it comes to being nothing close to natural....then what magical hive are you keeping bees in that compensate, and allow bees to communicate such as they do in feral colonies?
Come on now. You did more than suggest a book. You made a statement that you perceive as a flaw with many beekeepers as it comes to comb, you seemingly suggest that a good many beekeepers know less than you (afterall...you read a book!), or at least they know about beekeeping, but far less about bees. And from this, I am curious to the answers and enlightenment you may have.
As you used the word "Shame" to describe other beekeepers, I also use the word. It would be a shame for you to get on this forum, make the suggestions you made, and not further the conversation with what you apparently know. This is a place to expand other peoples knowledge. Not a place to suggest wrongdoing...then state if they want to know more...to buy a book. Are you selling books, or did you come here to help.
So tell me more of what you know.
