The Bee House is the “basic” tier of shelter for your bees. It has several limitations, including not accepting any frames and not being able to connect to any kind of pipes or similar. It is also impossible for bees to mutate to new species in it. It will however elongate the lifespan of your bees and increase their pollination speeds quite drastically.


The Bee House can be good a tool to use when starting bee breeding, as it has a cheap recipe consisting of things that players can find naturally in the world. Once a good base of bee species is acquired, players can upgrade to an Apiary and begin to mutate their bees into new species.

The Bee House is also a good tool to use when breeding trees. The increased lifespans and higher pollination rates that Bee Houses give are very useful, as it means that bees will work faster and for a longer period of time, and thus increasing the chances of a tree mutation to occur.


The Honey Comb can be replaced by any other comb, and the type of wood has no effect.
