I hope we get more marks for not waffling then! Many thanks for that Gerry, well worth knowing. I will keep that in mind today.

One way or another they had to write an essay about frames. A new first for the BBKA, essentially no choice on a vital part of the exam paper. In every previous exam to date there has always been a choice of answering one question out of the 2 topics offered for those vital 30 mark; allowing the candidate to "show off" on what he/she regarded as their stongest subject. I wonder which wag came up with that dumb idea. Our lot were not impressed.

The module one for me was a sympathetic one. The section one questions were straight forward, a couple of questions I can remember was "what would you use wire free foundation for?" and “name two hives that take national frames?”
The section questions were 1/stuff to consider when setting up an out apiary 2/about drone laying queen and laying workers 3/merging two colonies and 2 x 3 frame nucs 4/ if you get second hand kit, how do you clean it 5/sting reactions, recognition and what to do.
The last section was taking bees to the heather and write down how to deal with a colony that has open swarm cells in it.
