Nothing about a honey bee fails to amaze me, and their legs are no exception. The following Honey Bee Legs Quiz is difficult, so consider it a learning experience. I thought I knew this material inside and out, but as I went from source to source to double check my facts, I found some discrepancies.
The parts of the legs are pretty straight forward, but their purpose is often a little hazy. You would think that we beekeepers and bee researchers would know all the details by now, but apparently not. Like I did in the Drone Quiz, I’ve tried to expand on the answers in the results page and mention areas that are confusing.
The Honey Bee Legs Quiz contains 16 questions. They are all worth 6 points except the last four, which are worth 7. Last month, I found that the scores kept improving as time went on. I decided that either people were re-taking the test or they were reading the comments where people discussed the questions (or both). So this time, you can still leave a comment, but I am going to hold those that give away the answers for a couple of days until more people get a chance to take the quiz. Just be patient and have fun.
