Like Bullseye Bill said we all need to use what is best for us. I help an 'old timer' as I can, we talk about different methods, he Uses Chemicals on his hives but is interested in essential oils, which I use. He has never told me not to try other things and, infact, just the oppsite he encourages trying other things. We both laugh about the old saying "Don't try to reinvent the wheel", how else are we going to learn what is best 'For me'. I maintain that what works for one may not work for another. So I take all and use what fits me, keeping the rest in reserve so I can compare which is better.
I've had mixed results w/both plactia cell and wired and Durigult. Generally running a mix, the plastia cell was given to me so I'll use it, I bought Durigult, so I use it, Also have wired foundation so I'll use it. Also when I capture a ferial colony I let them draw their comb out to my frames and use it in brood chamber, The chew and dispose the rubber band. It works. So I'm not purist it's all good.
YBCUTE; to follow blindly and to so vemonetly oppose something new is to assure nothing new is learned. Nothing in this life is written in concret. Every thing can and does change. Our lives were built on experment. From Fire to jet power.
We each learn thru our mistakes and thru the mistakes of others.
I've preached enough now to see the responses.
