You are right about them giving up once the brood comb is exposed. Most of my stings during a removal came from them getting under my clothes and getting mashed.

My goodness, at least she is apparently a fellow beekeeper. I had no idea that this little video would be met with such criticism and controversy. A little entertainment from her, a fellow beekeeper to you was my goal. I don?t know the girl nor anything more about her than which is displayed in this. Video.

Honest question:
To be fair to her; Was y'all just as straight forward and critical in her comment section? Affording her the opportunity to answer your criticism and dislikes? If so maybe you might help her to be aware of details which might help her transition into making  the type of videos that would meet with your approval.

My first comment was centered in jest, if you re-read it I think you'll agree. We all know social media is tailored for clicks, so no biggie. Its America, she has a right to put content out into the public, the public has a right to express their opinion. No need for it to be more than that :wink:

Auatin;
When I read your initial comment I realized this was not the girl that I thought she was. I thought she was the Texas bee girl. 
I suppose being a beekeeper and watching a bee keeping video from time to time I get suggested videos which relate in the bee subject.

Honest question:
To be fair to her; Was y'all just as straight forward and critical in her comment section? Affording her the opportunity to answer your criticism and dislikes? If so maybe you might help her to be aware of details which might help her transition into making  the type of videos that would meet with your approval.
I don't need her or her videos to meet with my approval.  She can do whatever she wants and that's fine.  It's just not the kind of thing I enjoy or think is valuable.  Other people are welcome to it.  I think if more people didn't say anything at all when they didn't have anything nice to say, YouTube would be a nicer place, so I'm certainly not going to go and complain in her comments section.  I'm just not going to watch her videos.       


Reagan;
I did not mean to suggest that you needed this girl or her videos to meet with with your approval. I did make the suggestion while taking in consideration 'all the things' that you did not like about this video. My suggestion was not meant to be relayed to her in her comment section as 'not nice or rude comments' actually just the opposite; To help a fellow beekeeper (her) with 'constructive criticism', from one beekeeper to another, from you to her. If she is not high heady, she just might appreciate such 'if' presented in the right manner? Who knows? She might appreciate any 'constructive help' and eventually join us here at Beemaster!

Update: Again for fairness, for this young lady beekeepers sake, I mean to clear the air, as I feel a certain responsibility to this young beekeeper/beeremover if she is innocent of the 'charges' filled against her :shocked: :wink: since I am the one, by chance, who introduced her nice video here..

The young lady beekeeper did a mother video, which she 'foretold' at the end of the originally posted 'short' video in the OP. I decided to break down and have a look at that video "for myself"....  Im glad I did....
This removal consisted of not one, but two hives. The one in the OP and another.

The mother video; Titled: "Aggressive Bees Instant Regret" is a little over 7 minutes long. She 'did' warn of aggressive bees. She 'did' tell 'when and why' she put on her veil... (with her hair inside by the way).  She 'did' tell that she 'always' has her bee suit on 'standby and ready'. She 'did' warn of the possibility of Africanized bees in that area. She 'did' tell that she 'received stings' ...... and more....

For those who may not like her style... Thats fine.... In America we have that right and choice;  :wink: 
But Nothing fake about this girl from watching only 'half' of the mother video.
And again to be fair.  Her narrational skills might very well be considered educational to a newer beekeeper, or any beekeeper who might not know the basics of bee removal... IMHO

No one is filing charges against her, Phillip. I watched the same video you did, and I came away with a different opinion. I do not have anything against her personally, I just do not prefer the style of her videos. That's all.

I come from under the hill, and under the hills and over the hills my paths led.  And through the air, I am she that walks unseen.

Good Reagan, thanks for your clarification. I?m sure there are others who may not like her style either, It would be strange if all did.

On a positive; Her style in that short video of the OP may very well spark interest and attract new beekeepers to the hobby which might not have given the hobby a second thought otherwise . As mutual beekeepers I hope that we can agree on this positive prospective as good in that respect. 😊

A Rover series truck could be converted into a cool looking honey truck, imo. I've always liked those old nearly-bulletproof things from the '50s to the '70s. Don't care for the new ones... They're rare here, but ought to be some left down there .. if he's into that sort of thing.

As she proved! Didn't she do a swell job of getting it all together!!

Same here! I once had a 1950 chevy with the corner cab windows.

Old Chevys are cool too !
I was just thinking Rovers might be more plentiful and cheaper down there and the styling stayed basically the same for a lot of years.

Iconic to Americans that watched nature shows like "Wild Kingdom". If you say "truck", then say "Africa" or "Australia" ... that's what I think of.

Good point. But I have a feeling it would fly. The folks from Oz put on some good car show events as well.

I love the 68 in the video animal! You know your vehicles!

There is plenty of documentation for the last 2 centuries of people showing off with bees with no protective equipment.  It is educational in that it shows that bees are not necessarily intent on stinging you.  My guess is that beekeepers have been doing this since there were humans.  Certainly for millennia.  I never heard anyone criticize them until lately.
