Wish me luck I’ve got my BBKA Basic exam today. I’ll be officially a beekeeper !
we've all known their typeA local beekeeper giving a talk at my association suggested that in future we should have a qualification before being allowed to have bees.
My eldest son lives down your way and I usually visit once a year. Maybe I could book a test with you, in the hope of a lenient assessment?Not really relevant for you Giles after your decades of beeking. Have just done 8 assessments and all passed. The weakest areas are always diseases followed by swarming.
It's fair to say that the basic assessment is just that... you are not supposed to take it until you have kept bees for a year at least and you really have to be very bad to fail.
