Normally, I would add my experience and observations in regards to a hive like this. But years of posting on websites, has taught me many things. Like.....
1) ***Beekeeping is local (or so I'm told). What works in one place, does not mean it will work in another place. So how could I comment on such a question for any other beekeeper beyond my own backyard?
2) *** In the end, if it works, that is all that matters. Which means combining this thought with #1, each beekeeper should try it themselves and NEVER listen to others. Their failures or successes means nothing of what your outcome can or will be.
3) To suggest anything wrong with any other beekeepers ideology, IPM, management, will usually be seen as being negative and antagonistic. Who wants to be labled that?
So I am left with praise and encouraging words about every and each type of hive and ideology coming down the road. I love the video. I loved the rationalization of their message. We should embrace every beekeepers promotion and marketing, regardless of your initial knee jerk reaction. So step out of the box, and lets get crazy!
I think every beekeeper should run out and build one of these. Ok, every beekeeper but me. I'll reserve the right to not go down that path. But you should! It's a wonderful world. And do as you please. Don't let anybody say you shouldn't.
I say.......go for it!
