The Sinister Bee is a type of Bee added by Forestry. The aggressive effect stacks and will kill players not wearing an apiarist suit. It will also kill Zombie pigmen who wander by. Keep in mind the chunk has to stay loaded for a queen to continue her lifecycle. Have an apiarist suit, plan to stay back but near-by, or make a Chunk Loader in order to create this bee.

In order for it to go through its lifespan to breed, using a princess from species that can handle the Nether's Hellish/Arid climate is recommended. Modest Bee princess is good for this. Alternatives include mating the princess and the drone in the nether, and bringing it back to a normal climate to go through its lifespan.

Bringing an Apiary to the Nether and fortifying a small area with either cobblestone/obsidian/reinforced materials will keep it safe from Ghasts and other explosive creatures like the Fire Bat. (Using a linking book to get to and from your regular Bee field to the Nether Bee field and closing off exits is one option.)

Requirements[edit]

Pure Sinister Bees require a Hellish Climate and Arid Humidity to start working, and at least one nether wart.

Production[edit]

Sinister Bees produce Simmering Combs every 1.7 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.
