First try I got 31/50, which supposedly makes me an 'adequate' beekeeper.  rolleyes

Some of the questions were irrelevant to beekeeping in general, such as the question re the date of the introduction of Africanized bees into the US & others. Other questions were irrelevant to the way I want to keep bees (avoid most chemicals.) And I got a lot of those wrong.

Having said that, I got a whole lot more right than I should have by pure guessing. After all there's a 25% chance of guessing right with four choices, and a 50% of guessing right with two choices.  Wink

It was fun, though, and I'll probably take it again just for the fun of it and the chance that I might learn something.   Smiley

Well, according to my second try, I'm now a "formidable beekeeper."  Wink

I found this answer interesting:
Q. To make a weak colony stronger, you might ...
Correct A.
a. remove a strong hive from its stand and place the weak colony in its place

That makes sense if you figure that the forager bees from the strong hive will tend to come back to the weak hive. Otherwise it makes no sense at all ...

This will definitely work if you change hive places during the day when most foragers are out forageing.  They come back to the hive location not the hive itself and in turn gives a boost to the weak colony with out any noticeale set back to the strong colony. This method works on drifting issues also.

I got a 35 out of 50, or a C-.  I'll take that sice I a so new that I don't have any bees yet.  Just shows me that all this reading is maybe paying off.  More reading is necessary, though.

I got 34 out of 50, which isn't all that great, although it did say I was a 'formidable beekeeper'.   Need to keep reading and learning!

39.   Furrows brow, hits books.

Remember the questions though, those who are lamenting their scores, some of the questions were honey industry stats questions.  Most beeks don't keep that stuf running around in your head.  I think it would have been more fun if it was strickly beekeeping and bee biology.  Byut I can be funny that way.

I just took it again and got a 45 out of 50.  I wish my bees knew how smart I am. . . They don't respect me at all.

35 out of 50, I thought I was going to do pretty good, since I'm fresh from reading so many books about the topic.

Guess I was wrong.

In my defense I will say that half of my wrong answers were because I didn't read the question throughly.
