The more I took it the worse I got, should have quit while ahead.  Those could go for a lot of things I have done :)

40/50. I went back and counted about 38 questions that I thought I was sure about. 3 of the 38 surefire answers were wrong  :o. The rest were a mixture of pickem' and "edjumacated" guesses.

29/50 I'll take it! Better than half . I didn't think I would get that much. Good test tho  :)  I knew there were many questions I just wouldn't know, like queen rearing, and stuff I haven't dealt with yet like nucs ~ I'll definately take it again ~

Change my IE, got tired of saying or complete stop out of a web page I was trying to get on, with that said I got a 30/50, I could have gotten a couple more if I read the question twice, LOL.

I would question some of the answers that they say is the right one. a question on how many frames of honey and pollen to produce a frame of brood a-1h 1p, b- 1/2h 1/2p, c- 1h 1/2p d- 1/2h 1p. their answer is 1 frame honey 1 frame pollen But the thing about bees is that they never fill a pollen frame cells to the top but only ever fill them 1/2 way so in terms of volume of pollen to honey the ratio would be 1 honey to 1/2 pollen.

30/50. I thought some of the questions, while neat to know, doesn't make me a better be keeper to know. I mean really if I don't know it I can always come here and get the answer, or at least I thought I could. I am the "threadkilla" so...

37 out of 50. Not bad for not getting my bees yet and only reading all your posts.

I agree, but its fun anyway.  The most misleading 'correct' answer was that you use TM-25 to 'treat' AFB.  You may use it prophylactically, but NOT to treat active AFB, you burn it in the USA...right?  ;)  43/50

I read all the posts---got a 31 out of 31.  But after reading all about it, I chickened out of the quiz---at my age my memory ain't what it used to be.  :-[

Thank you.

I suspect it's book knowledge. I am only in year 2.
