Of course, on their website the reviews are all praise.

I've seen the pictures on YouTube and apparently they work. I really don't see the advantage to them. For one thing, they will be expensive. Secondly, uncapping is not that big of a job. Thirdly, to have a healthy hive, you need to go through it on a regular basis to check on the health of the hive, parasite problem and to see what kind of job your Queen is doing. I think I'll stick to the tried and true.

We have a few newbees that purchased the equipment, I don't know if they will be using them this year. Our club has a July 4th BBQ in a few weeks, I hope they will be there so I can get an update. I can't afford to purchase it, as we just shelled out for predator deterrents, which I hope will deter the Bears from the bees and the coyotes and foxes from the chickens. Farming sure is expensive, Lol!
Life is a rush into the unknown. You can duck down and hope nothing hits you, or you can stand tall, show it your teeth and say "Dish it up, Baby, and don't skimp on the jalape├▒os."
