Yes. That is PMS in the brood caused by varroa and it is a severe infection, probably get a better view of the whole thing on a computer screen. You can also see sick looking adult bees with deformed wings walking around. The guy discusses the brood but was totally unaware of the issue, however the hive as pictured is right on the tipping point of a rapid decline, and death. For all the sick and 1/2 chewed larvae that can be seen, there will also be a lot of sick or dying larvae under normal looking caps, a lot of that brood will not even hatch, and of the ones that do hatch some of them will only live a few days. The varroa mites then have to cram in increasing numbers onto the decreasing amount of alive larvae, making it unlikely the hive would have survived much longer after this video was made.OT, I went back and looked at 13:12. Although I am on a cell phone, those look like sunken and perforated cappings in the brood nest to me. Is that what you saw?
i liked the, fire up the extractor, for 1 frame. why have a flow hive and an extractor? seems one or the other..What really shocked me - all that money spent on whatever.
psm1212 I am not sure what the drive is to be on the camera and online sharing it. I am perhaps to old to understand the need for the voyeurism or what ever drives this current need to be seen doing by the world. This would be my somewhat exact fear to be so poor at doing something I look bad doing it in from on 1000s I have been asked by mentees for pics and videos and I almost always decline. To Me this is odd behavior, "look at me I am bee keeping" I just do not get it. And yes there was a fair amount of uncapped honey, it will be good for a while. Somewhat sad when you do not know what you do not know.Before I criticize, I am so thankful that I did not post any videos of myself when I first started beekeeping.
He would learn a great deal from watching an experienced beekeeper use a hive tool.
Hope he eats all of his "honey" before it ferments.
I can understand this somewhat - say, I want an alternative way to make living OR earn supplemental income.psm1212 I am not sure what the drive is to be on the camera and online sharing it...........GG
