Effect

Effects are special traits found in Bees that can affect the player or the environment around them in different ways. These effects will be triggered only inside the range of an active Queen's Area. Many effects are exclusive to a certain bee or bee branch, but can be inherited through selective breeding. The majority of bees have "None" as their effect. Negative effects can be negated by wearing a full set of Apiarist's Clothes.
