What physical features help us accurately define a honeybee as an insect?
- A small animal that crawls with many legs and flies with wings.
- A body in three main parts, compound eyes, 3 pairs of legs, 1 pair antennae, 2 pairs of wings.
- A multi-cellular organism with 8 pairs of legs and 2 pairs of eyes.
- An animal with 1 pair of wings, 2 pairs of legs, and 2 pairs of antennae.
What are the names of the three main boby parts of an insect?
- The head, abdomen, and the legs.
- The thorax, abdomen, and the legs.
- The head, the thorax, and the abdomen.
- The thorax, head and torso.
Which body part of an insect has no appendages?
- The head has no appendages but has antennae.
- The thorax has no appendages, they are found on the head and abdomen.
- Each body part has a pair of appendages, antennae, legs of wings.
- The abdomen has no apendages, but contains the reproductive organs.
Why do honeybees not require a well developed sense of taste?
- Their sense of smell is more important for detecting pheromones and food.
- Because they can get nourishment from almost anything.
- Unpallatable food will be rejected by the bees gut automatically.
- The bees always recognise pallatable food by sight.
What are pheromones as used in the honybee colony?
- They are small traces of feces left to mark out honeybee territory.
- Chemical substances used as an advanced communication method in the colony.
- They are strong tasting substances in the waste materials bees pass out.
- They are the visual indcators given off by the bees to instruct other bees.
Why is sight an important sense for bees to possess?
- It saves them from colliding with the hard parts inside the hive.
- So that they can signal to each other as members of the same colony.
- It is neccessary for accurate locaton, orientation and recognition.
- They need good eyesight to find the brood inside the dark hive.
How do honeybees navigate accurately to find forage and get back to the hive?
- They use good eyesight, a keen sense of smell, and the suns position.
- They follow well established foraging routes.
- The location of forage is instictive and inherant in all honeybees.
- They watch for other bees with nectar and pollen and follow them.
How do bees communicate the distance, type, and location of forage to the colony?
- They use special bodily tail waggling movements called the 'Bee Dance'.
- They lead scout bees to the site and back again to learn the route.
- They pass the foraged food round the hive to get others bees attention.
- They use audible sounds to alert the foraging bees of good forage.
Bee space is important, how do bees manage to achieve this?
- They chew their way through small spces to open them up.
- They count the wax cells they use for building to maintain accruacy.
- They use their antennae and body hairs to measure accuratley.
- they use the width of their heads to measure the gap.
Bees have no ears, so how do they hear things in the hive?
- They use their compound eyes instead to receive messages.
- They detect sound vibration with their antennae and hind legs.
- They can detect sound with their sensitive wings.
- Sounds and vibrations are picked up through the bees feet.
How do honeybees transport nectar and pollen back the hive?
- Foragers mix them together and carry between their front legs.
- Bees have a special pouch under their bellies for carrying things.
- They carry nectar in a special stomach, and pollen on their rear legs.
- They coat their abdomen with nectar and pollen then lick it off in the hive.
What is the process for turning nectar into honey?
- Bees store nectar in wax cells where it slowly ferments into honey.
- Nectar is mixed with pollen to chemically change into honey.
- the bees heat the nectar in the comb to change it into honey.
- Bees mix the nectar with enzymes from their saliva to create honey.
Nectar and newly made honey has a runny consistency, how do bees change this?
- They mix the nectar with pollen to stiffen it up in the cells.
- They seal the nectar over in the cells with wax to set it hard.
- The bees fan it with their wings to reduce the water content down.
- Bees cluster over the cells to heat it up and evaporate the water out.
Which part of the honeybees digestive sytem is used for manipulating wax?
- They use there honey crop, or pre-stomach for this.
- The lower part of their gut where honey and pollen is absorbed.
- Wax is manipulated from the rear end of their long gut.
- They use their mandibles for ingesting pollen and manipulating wax.
Do female wroker honeybees lay some of the eggs in the hive?
- Yes, they share the egg laying duties with th e queen.
- No, but some may start to lay infetile eggs in the absence of a queen.
- Not usually, they will only lay eggs if the queen needs a rest.
- Yes, but workers lay in the lower parts of the hive only.
How do honeybees breath the oxygen they need to survive?
- They breath through their mouths like other mammals.
- They breath through the tubes in their antennae.
- They absorb oxygen through their wings when flying.
- They pass air through spiracles on the side of their bodies.
What do bees have in place of normal red celled blood found in mammals?
Which gland is responsible for the production of brood food and royal jelly?
- The Mandibular Gland.
- The Nasonov Gland.
- The Hypopharyngeal Gland.
- The Wax Secreting Glands
Which gland is responsible for indicating a bees position to others?
- The Salivary Gland.
- The Nasonov Gland.
- The Sting Scent Gland.
- The Mandibular glands
Which glands are responsible for the production of material for building comb?
- The Wax Secreting Glands.
- The Sting Scent Glands.
- The Mandibular Glands
- The Salivary Glands.
