We usually see this in between frame drone pupae that are exposed during our August workshops.

As I said earlier.....few will ever really get a passion and consequently the understanding of the dynamics at work. And, I believe, you simply have to accept that or stop teaching. A bit like I tell new beekeepers....'you have to harden your heart if you plan to keep bees....no matter what you do some will die'. A similar thing applies to teaching....some will soak up everything they can and some never will....and there isn't anything you can do to change that. Just be satisfied with those who get it.
