How’s your bee IQ?
If you are anything like me, January finds you eagerly awaiting the appearance of foraging honey bees. But for most of us, other kinds of bees will appear many weeks before the honey bees.
Although many bees, such as bumbles and carpenters, are large and easy to see, others are so small we hardly notice them. This quiz is about your local wild bees, whether you live in Toowoomba, Launceston, Chilliwack, or Reynosa.
When you answer the questions, remember that I’m referring to “most bees most of the time.” With bees, there is always an exception, but here I’m looking for generalities. Go ahead and give it a try. I will explain each answer in a day or two.
