The Embittered Bee is a type of Bee added by Extra Bees. It can be found in Nether Hives located in Nether Fortresses.


Pure Embittered Bees require a Hellish Climate and Arid Humidity to start working, and at least one Nether Wart or Nether Rack as a Flower.

. They can be used to breed in the Overworld in a Alveary with heaters, in a warm or hot biome, or with a +/- 3 Temperature Tolerance.


Embittered Bees produce Simmering Combs every 3.1 minutes. Note that production times are an approximation based on the bee's base production speed and the product's rarity. They do not reflect actual production time.
