Title: Beekeeping Test..
Post by: beebiz on February 06, 2005, 07:38:21 pm
Hey, all you beekeeping experts (self and otherwise proclaimed), do you want to test your beekeeping knowledge?

I ran across this site this afternoon.  Located at goodbeekeeping.com's website, it is a 50 question test to see how much you know about the subject.  If you take the test more than once, some of the questions will be different because the questions are randomly selected from a data base of a bunch of questions.  The first time I took it, I scored 25 of 50.  The second time, I scored 38 of 50.  I figure I'll leave well enough alone and not take it again!

If you want to take the test, click:

http://www.gobeekeeping.com/Test.htm

If you decide to take the test, let us know how you did!

Hve fun!

Hi all,

Ryan, I hate it that it wouldn't work for you!  Maybe one of us will run across another test or the like and it will work for you.

Well, after seeing everyone else's scores, I don't feel so bad about mine! LOL  Lesli, you are correct.  For a score of 38, they say that we are "formidable" (formidable >adjective inspiring fear or respect through being impressively large, powerful, or capable.  From the dictionary in my "Wrod Perfect II" program) beekeepers!  Great job everybody!!

I hope everyone has enjoyed this.  If you have, let me know.  I'll be glad to share with all of you any other "interesting" things concerning honey bees that I come across!

Bee Good,
beebiz

36/50 here, but I agree with TT, some of their awnsers are up for review. I got caught on how many lbs of honey in a full frame. I said 6-7 they said 5-6. Oh well, no use sour grapeing! :lol:
Title: Beekeeping Test..
Post by: Lesli on February 08, 2005, 09:11:25 pm
No sour grapes here, either, but yes, I thought a few questions were ambiguous. But then, there are a lot of things about beekeeping that are like that. :)

Title: 37......
Post by: Yarra_Valley on March 09, 2005, 09:42:22 pm
I didn't think that was too bad.  I'm happy with 37, given the text was densigned for beekeepers in the US.

Some of the questions were tricky or irrelevant, i.e. going from celcius to farenheit, converting the months of the year around, km/h to m/ph. When trees found in america flower is kind of irrelevant in Australia.  

I, also failed the one about working the bees when the neighbours are having a party. That would depend on how far away your naighbours are wouldn't it?

Next time I shall use a calculator :).

I only got 25 or 50. I got a lot to learn....

Funny thing is I was rather suprised I did that good! I guess my research has stuck some of it in my old head.

Only had the hive for a little over a week. But did do a good bit of reading before that.

Hi ALL

I scored a 38. I just got started this spring and it has been a wild ride. I made a few mistakes but I have learned from them. All-in-all, this is the most fun i have had with a hobbyin years. My wife said I have too many hobbies so I will stick with just the bees.

Title: Re: Beekeeping Test..
Post by: Darjones on December 28, 2006, 11:13:28 am
There are a few incorrect answers on the questionnaire.  There are also a couple of dated questions.  An example is about the "latest report" of africanized bees found in the wing of a plane in South Carolina.  This was from 2002 which is rather dated compared to current reports of africanized bees in Florida.  There is also a question about the various sugar contents of honey which states that sucrose is not a normal component of honey.  Nectar as secreted by plants is sucrose which is then inverted by the bees to fructose and glucose.  There is always a small amount of sucrose that is not inverted.  It is typically 2% or less of the total sugar content of ripened honey.  You can feed table sugar to bees and they will invert it from sucrose and make something similar to honey.  The way you detect such adulteration is not by measuring the sucrose content, but rather by checking for the proteins made by sugar cane or sugar beets.

Post by: inga on February 27, 2007, 10:08:22 pm
First try I got 31/50, which supposedly makes me an 'adequate' beekeeper.  :roll:

Some of the questions were irrelevant to beekeeping in general, such as the question re the date of the introduction of Africanized bees into the US & others. Other questions were irrelevant to the way I want to keep bees (avoid most chemicals.) And I got a lot of those wrong.

Having said that, I got a whole lot more right than I should have by pure guessing. After all there's a 25% chance of guessing right with four choices, and a 50% of guessing right with two choices.  ;)

It was fun, though, and I'll probably take it again just for the fun of it and the chance that I might learn something.   :)

Well, according to my second try, I'm now a "formidable beekeeper."  ;)

I found this answer interesting:
Q. To make a weak colony stronger, you might ...
Correct A.
a. remove a strong hive from its stand and place the weak colony in its place

That makes sense if you figure that the forager bees from the strong hive will tend to come back to the weak hive. Otherwise it makes no sense at all ...

This will definitely work if you change hive places during the day when most foragers are out forageing.  They come back to the hive location not the hive itself and in turn gives a boost to the weak colony with out any noticeale set back to the strong colony. This method works on drifting issues also.

39.   Furrows brow, hits books.

Remember the questions though, those who are lamenting their scores, some of the questions were honey industry stats questions.  Most beeks don't keep that stuf running around in your head.  I think it would have been more fun if it was strickly beekeeping and bee biology.  Byut I can be funny that way.

In my defense I will say that half of my wrong answers were because I didn't read the question throughly.

36   :(  although thats supposed to be good (or o.k.) I was dissapointed in myself. I did choose the wrong answere to 1 of the questions that I knew. It was the ? about a drones mother father and grandfather. I think I read here on this forum about how a drone has a grandfather but no father. Anyway I read that somewhere and knew that was the answere but the way they listed the answeres tricked me. I missed two other ?'s that I would have gotten right if I would have went with my first instincts. I still after so many yrs. cant do that for ?'s that I dont know when taking a test. This is my first yr. beekeeping though + the yr. isnt even over yet so I guess I did o.k.

You need to look page two over again, several scored the same or better as me. I think I did wellbecause I'm a good test taker, and only an average beekeeper, surely the forum doesn't slow me down from being better, so I'll blame my own laziness.

Post by: BEES4U on September 24, 2008, 09:49:36 am

I said 6-7 pounds of honey per frame.

 :roll:It depends on the number of frames per honey super and or the spacing of the frames.
I have helped to check the weights of some very full 9 frames per super.
We weighed the super, extracted the honey, put the same frames back into the super, weighed the super and came up with 55 to 58 pounds!
Ten frames fully drawn out to the bottom bar should yield 3.5 to 4 pounds.
So, they need to change the questions structure.
I prefer the medium depth supers, 6 & 5/8" deep, for extracting

Between the two scores I read a website with information and the book Fruitless Fall by Rowan Jacobson. It was very informative on getting me up to date on the current problems we're having with bees and the other struggling pollinators.

The test seems to be a good general guide on knowledge.

33/50 not too bad for a newbee.   

Got a question about #40, I will not give away the answer,
 Question 40
A lazy beekeeper puts all of his four supers on the bees in the spring of the year. Which statement is true?

a. Empty supers encourage the bees to gather more honey
b. This is called bottom supering
c. The bees will fill one super at a time until all are done
d. All heat in the brood chamber will be lost to the empty space above

Can you really do that?

38 of fifty for me.  Most wrong answers were 'treatment related' and since I don't treat I suppose it was expected.  Some of the questions didn't leave room for other accepted methods (ie) Under feeding bees, sugar syrup wasn't even mentioned, so I had to choose corn syrup as a safe feed despite disagreeing with its use.  Oh well the test proclaims I am a formidable beek so I am satisfied.  I'll likely take it again sometime.

This was  link posted by a member back in 2005. Beemaster has no control over the link or any access to the host. Hopefully they will restore the link ,but it could go away . I hope it is just a temporary server issue.

If it's a server issue it's a bad one. Link is still not working.
Their homepage doesn't even load. Oh, well would have been fun.

45, but I guessed on several and got lucky. "Exalted"... I don't think so!

ok... I got 37. Not bad for my first 6 months of keeping bees. That said I agree with MB's comment that it is important to give their answer not the correct one.

Question 39
The use of chemicals in a hive of honey bees is regulated by:?

a. instructions provided by the seller
b. the label of the product
c. the way the beekeeper uses the product
d. none of these

Ultimately, the beekeeper using the product regulates its use. I don't use chemicals except sugar but just because it has a label doesn't mean that they will be used in accordance with the label. That would have been 38... Still looking at some of the others I got wrong.

50 /50  on the Beginners & Advanced 49/50 Not to Bad been studying and researching for two years about honey bees missed one on wind and I still disagree about that one . and I have been working with bees with bees for two month with my mentor and I have yet to get my own bees yet . I am still learning .It was fun though I did enjoy it never tested myself on what i have been learning as there is so much that contradicts each state and country .

Bump.
I suspect that we have a lot of new members that have not seen this thread. If you go to the very first thread, it has a link for the different tests. Let us know how you do.

only 38 on the first test but I don't agree with #1 and #40.  I know beekeepers that use nothing more than burlap for fuel.

Well on the swarming question, I would pick "none of the above" if it were offered...  Adding supers is ineffective during prime swarm season and the rest are ineffective at any time.
