Ok, to sum that up, Langstroths are pushed for reason of....
Because some promote TBH, for whatever the reason while making wild claims ( I agree - not a good thing), that it should be done the same for Langstroth. A kind of "tit for tat" to level out the playing field.
Because Langstroth is the oldest, and you should give homage to always doing the same thing without change.
Because Langstroth will be here long after we are all dead.
Because mistakes are more easily corrected in a Langstroth. :?
Because, just in case, your ever going to be commercial beekeeper, Langstroth hives are more suited. :roll:
Ok, anyone else have anything? Perhaps a list of mistakes more easily corrected? The rest is really made up stuff IMO or trivia that adds nothing to someone looking for details. It seems apparent that the whole "advocates everything TBH" type comments are bringing in nothing but bias to the conversation.
I don't push either one. I state both pro and con issues on my website.
I'm just trying to find out in detail why some think you need a couple years of Langstroth under your belt before some beekeeper should try a TBH. So far, that has not been answered.
