ON THIS WIKI
Fertility is a trait of Bees that describes how many drones a Queen will produce at the end of her lifecycle. Fertility does not affect the number of Princesses, which will always be one unless the Queen is afflicted with the [ - ] tag.
Normal bees have a Fertility value ranging from x1 to x4, meaning anywhere from one to four drones will be produced along with the single princess. x1 and x2 are dominant genes, x3 and x4 are recessive. Like most traits, Fertility can be extracted into Serums with an Isolator.
[ - ] Bees
These Princesses will die out after a few generations at most and pass the [ - ] trait onto any offspring, thus are only useful for temporary gains. The [ - ] tag is the result of Princesses created through use of a Swarmer or less commonly, inferior Serums used to inoculate a bee. This trait cannot be bred out.

Any species not listed below can be assumed to have the normal x2 Fertility trait.
