Meadow Bees are a common type of bee found in Meadows Beehives. They are bred in an Apiary or Alveary.

When breaking a Meadows Beehive with a Scoop, it will drop a Meadows Princess with an 80% chance of also dropping a Meadows Drone. These can then be bred in an Apiary or an Alveary to produce a Meadows Queen. Breeding them with different species can result in new mutations.

Wild hives can typically be found in the plains, or in areas with few trees that have a normal amount of humidity and normal temperature.

Meadows bees have no special traits or effects. They do not work at night, underground or when it is raining unless bred to do so.


Meadow Bees produce Honey Combs which can be made into Honey Drops, which then can be used in a Beealyzer as well as other Bee related machinery. They have no secondary or specialty produce.
