Questions and Answers
  • 1. 

    Honeybee larvae are fed what kind of food?

    • A.

      Honey wheat

    • B.

      Insects

    • C.

      Royal jelly and beebread

    • D.

      Steak and eggs

    Correct Answer
    C. Royal jelly and beebread
    Explanation
    Honeybee larvae are fed royal jelly and beebread. Royal jelly is a secretion produced by worker bees and is rich in proteins, vitamins, and minerals. It is the primary food source for the first few days of a honeybee larva's life. Beebread, on the other hand, is a mixture of pollen and honey that worker bees collect and store in the honeycomb. It is fermented by the bees and serves as a source of nutrients for the developing larvae. Both royal jelly and beebread play a crucial role in the growth and development of honeybee larvae.

    Rate this question:

  • 2. 

    How many castes or classes of bees are there in a colony?

    • A.

      1

    • B.

      2

    • C.

      3

    • D.

      4

    Correct Answer
    C. 3
    Explanation
    In a colony, there are typically three castes or classes of bees: the queen, the worker bees, and the drones. The queen is responsible for laying eggs and maintaining the colony's population. The worker bees are the female bees that perform various tasks such as foraging, nursing the brood, and building and maintaining the hive. The drones are the male bees whose main role is to mate with the queen. Each caste has its own specific roles and responsibilities within the colony.

    Rate this question:

  • 3. 

    Which caste of bee is responsible only for mating?

    • A.

      Queen

    • B.

      Worker

    • C.

      Drone

    • D.

      Scout

    Correct Answer
    C. Drone
    Explanation
    Drones are the male bees in a colony whose sole responsibility is to mate with the queen. They do not participate in any other tasks such as foraging or building the hive. The queen bee mates with multiple drones during a mating flight, and the drones die shortly after mating. Therefore, drones are exclusively responsible for mating in a bee colony.

    Rate this question:

  • 4. 

    It is the job of the queen bee to

    • A.

      Find food for the colony.

    • B.

      Lay eggs.

    • C.

      Pass laws.

    • D.

      Care for the brood.

    Correct Answer
    B. Lay eggs.
    Explanation
    The queen bee's primary role in the colony is to lay eggs. She is responsible for reproducing and ensuring the continuation of the colony by laying thousands of eggs each day. The other tasks mentioned, such as finding food for the colony, caring for the brood, and passing laws, are typically carried out by other members of the bee colony, such as worker bees.

    Rate this question:

  • 5. 

    The queen bee is ____ than the other bees of the colony.

    • A.

      Larger and more slender

    • B.

      Fatter

    • C.

      Smaller

    • D.

      Trendier

    Correct Answer
    A. Larger and more slender
    Explanation
    The queen bee is larger and more slender than the other bees of the colony. This is because the queen bee has a unique role in the colony as the reproductive female. She needs to be larger in order to accommodate her larger reproductive organs and to lay a large number of eggs. Additionally, being more slender allows her to move more easily within the hive and perform her duties efficiently.

    Rate this question:

  • 6. 

    Bees are creatures that metamorphose or go through a complete transformation before they mature. What are the stages they transform through?

    • A.

      Embryo, infant, child, and adolescent

    • B.

      Egg, larva, pupa, and adult

    • C.

      Egg, hatchling, youth, and adult

    • D.

      Egg, brood, larva, and adult

    Correct Answer
    B. Egg, larva, pupa, and adult
    Explanation
    Bees go through a complete metamorphosis, which includes four stages. They start as eggs, then hatch into larvae. After that, they enter the pupa stage, where they undergo significant changes and develop into adult bees. Finally, they emerge as fully matured adults.

    Rate this question:

  • 7. 

    A larva that has been selected to become a queen bee is fed a diet consisting of only

    • A.

      Nectar.

    • B.

      Honey.

    • C.

      Royal jelly.

    • D.

      Jam.

    Correct Answer
    C. Royal jelly.
    Explanation
    The correct answer is royal jelly. Royal jelly is a substance secreted by worker bees and is exclusively fed to the larvae that are chosen to become queen bees. It is a highly nutritious and protein-rich substance that helps in the development and differentiation of the queen bee. Nectar and honey are common food sources for all bees, while jam is not a natural food for bees and does not play a role in the development of queen bees.
