    Is it true??? If a man is alone in the woods, and a lady isn't there to hear him and he speaks, is he still wrong?

    If you need to read books, I think I'd better skip the test. Could be discouraging.

    The older I get, the better I get at doing the right thing, letting it go, and lounging in my computer chair going, gee, I should do some work! Bees are plumb easy when you have been through as much as I have.

    OK, I took the darned test. Got 35 out of 50. Not too shabby. One I know I missed by mouse error, got the wrong spot to click. I was totally guessing on how long from egg to mature queen, mature drone. Is it 16 days for a queen?

    Queen = 16 days
    Worker = 21 days
    Drone = 24 days

    Depends on your meaning of mature though. These figures I have mentioned are to emergence.

    32/50 is a little embarassing...missed several that I shouldn't have.

    Keep taking it. The questions change each time and you will get better as you go along.

    You scored 36/50 correctly.

    Ranking: You are a formidable beekeeper.

    Not too bad since I just installed my first ever package April 15th...

    Good job. Be sure to take it a few times. Each time gives you a different set of questions.
