Ghastly Bees are one of the bees from the Skulking Branch. True to their name, this species of bee occasionally spawns Ghasts near the Apiary in which they are located. This makes this bee potentially very dangerous if placed in an area with valuable items/machines. However, they do produce renewable Ghast Tears, so it can (in some cases) be worthwhile to remove the Ghastly effect either via serums or Bee Breeding to acquire slow but renewable Ghast Tears. Modifying the working speed with a Serum is not worthwhile in most cases due to the Ghastly Bee's already high work speed.


Ghastly 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.

Pure Ghastly Bees require a Cold, Normal or Warm Climate and Normal Humidity to start working, and at least one Flower - any of the two vanilla flowers or any of the flowers added by ExtrabiomesXL. Like all species, their traits can be modified through Bee Breeding.
