Why wouldn't someone think that what worked with other animals would not work with Bees? But as the same practices did not over time produce the same results. The reasons why where looked for.
Where are the various breeds of bees that would have resulted from the use of these methods? Had they worked such breeds would exist. They produce breeds in every other animal they are used with. But not bees.
