Batty Bees are one of the bees from the Skulking Branch. True to their name, this species of bee occasionally spawns Fire Bats near the Apiary in which they are located.


Batty Bees produce Furtive Combs as is the case with the other members of the Skulking Branch. These result in Beeswax, Honeydew and Propolis when centrifuged.
