45, but I guessed on several and got lucky. "Exalted"... I don't think so!

ok... I got 37. Not bad for my first 6 months of keeping bees. That said I agree with MB's comment that it is important to give their answer not the correct one.

Question 39
The use of chemicals in a hive of honey bees is regulated by:?

a. instructions provided by the seller
b. the label of the product
c. the way the beekeeper uses the product
d. none of these

Ultimately, the beekeeper using the product regulates its use. I don't use chemicals except sugar but just because it has a label doesn't mean that they will be used in accordance with the label. That would have been 38... Still looking at some of the others I got wrong.

50 /50  on the Beginners & Advanced 49/50 Not to Bad been studying and researching for two years about honey bees missed one on wind and I still disagree about that one . and I have been working with bees with bees for two month with my mentor and I have yet to get my own bees yet . I am still learning .It was fun though I did enjoy it never tested myself on what i have been learning as there is so much that contradicts each state and country .

Bump.
I suspect that we have a lot of new members that have not seen this thread. If you go to the very first thread, it has a link for the different tests. Let us know how you do.

only 38 on the first test but I don't agree with #1 and #40.  I know beekeepers that use nothing more than burlap for fuel.
