  • “Banging on a dustbin lid will somehow get a swarm to settle where you want it”. True or false?
  • “The acarine mite was responsible for the loss of about 90% of the nation’s honeybees in the early 20th century”. True or false?

There will be plenty of other examples. Do you know of any others from personal experience?
