    # 1 - The venom of honeybees is more toxic than the venom of wasps! True or False?

    # 2 - When a honeybee unloads a load of propolis upon returning to the hive, which pair of legs does she use to unload?

    # 3 - What is this? (I've blurred any tell tale words :wink:)
    [​IMG]

    # 4 - After you have used # 3, it reads 22.7, what is it telling you?

    # 5 - What do the Hypopharyngeal glands produce?


    Good Luck!

    No one's got them all right yet, one or two have been answered, won't say which ones.
    Did I make this too hard? :wink::lol::razz:

    Well, Perry, if Acmebees didn't get it right, you stumped me with this one. Unless you docked him for calling a refractometer a honey moisture meter.

    If he got #1 wrong, I will spend my life disbelieving it.
    He may have missed #2, because I have always been taught the other bees remove it, not the carrier.

    I am heading off for the night, and I wouldn't want anyone losing sleep over the answers :lol: so here goes:


    # 1 - True

    # 2 - Trick question, Iddee is absolutely right. Honeybees cannot unload propolis on their own, it must be removed by other worker bees!


    # 3 - Refractometer, but I would accept moisture meter as well.


    # 4 - At 22.7%, the moisture in your honey is too high and must be reduced (it could ferment, not always a bad thing if you're not selling it:wink:)


    # 5 - Royal Jelly.


    Congratulations on the correct answers! :clapping:Sorry about the trick question, but I must warn you, there may be others. :mrgreen:

    I think trick questions are perfectly OK

    Sorry I missed this one, celebrating a 15 year olds birthday.
