Ok I know it has been a while and I have been neglecting blogging but I did the bee basic assessment on Thursday. I would highly recommend doing this to anyone who keeps bees.
The examiner was excellent and did everything to put me at ease.
I went through a hive at the association apiary (clumsy even by my standards think I was nervous) makes you remember we all hate the word assessment.
Not to anyone taking the assessment you need to point stuff out so practice holding frame one handed.
Then questions about bee diseases and swarm prevention in the car.
Now fingers crossed more later
