This page refers to the Bees! mod, a sub-component of Frackin' Universe.

Getting Started Edit

First of all, you will need a compatible or matching Queen and Drone(s). Bees can be found in the wild on certain types of planets. These can be caught using a Bug Net which can be crafted at a Foraging Table(or its upgrade, the Agricultural Station). Additionally, you will need to create an Apiary Crafting Station to produce an Apiary to house your bees. The Apiary Crafting Station can be crafted in the Matter Assembler.

Now that you have your Apiary and your matching bee queen and drone, you can place them in the Apiary. If it's daytime(bees do not normally produce at night) and the Apiary is within 80 blocks of flowers, the bees will begin to produce drones and something else. What bees produce depends on what variant they are. Bee production can be increased by planting more flowers nearby, adding drones, and adding certain Frames to the Apiary, or its enhanced version, the Giant Apiary.

Once your Apiaries are active, they will periodically spawn queens and drones. While flying the bees use the common bug sprite, but colored to match their type. Catching the queens that spawn, or others in the wild, is the only way to obtain more queens.

Finally, the bees will have produced some Honeycomb. Honeycomb can be placed in a Honey Extractor to make Honey or in a Wooden Centrifuge (or the enhanced versions Iron Centrifuge, Industrial Centrifuge, Lab Centrifuge, or Gas Centrifuge) or a Hand Mill/Extraction Lab/Extraction Lab MKII/Quantum Extractor to produce items. An Industrial Centrifuge with an attached Honey Jarring Machine will produce both honey and items as long as Empty Bottles are inside the Honey Jarring Machine.

Additionally, some bees can be interbred to create new kinds of bees which in turn produce different materials. All bees interbreed only during the day, including the Nocturnal, Moon and Elder Bees (which typically produce at night). Refer to the tables below for a comprehensive list on what species can interbreed and what they produce.

Note: No more than 1 bee queen can be placed in the apiary, and up to 1000 drones. Additional drones will be placed in the output area but not speed up production, and additional queens in the top input slot will be ejected if the bees in the hive are producing or interbreeding.
