Attractive Bees are one of the results of breeding bees in the Vis branch added by Magic Bees. Their effect, Aura Attract, allows for Nodes to be brought nearer to the Apiary or Alveary in which they reside, allowing for the circumvention of the need for the Node Mover construct from Thaumcraft 3 to move nodes.


Attractive Bees produce Memory Combs as is the case with the other members of the Vis Branch. These result in Magic Wax, Honeydew and Intellect Drops (which are used to make Bottles o' Enchanting) when centrifuged.
