The Darkened Bee is a bee added by Forestry which is only breedable in the Feed The Beast Retro SSP Pack and SMP Pack. For these Retro Packs, a special version of Forestry was designed that allowed for this bee (and the two related species, the Reddened Bee and the Omega Bee) to be bred.

Darkened Bees were intended to link in with Equivalent Exchange 2, the older version of Equivalent Exchange, and use components from that mod in the process of breeding.

Darkened Bees can still be obtained via the /givedrone and /giveprincess commands in the non-FTB versions of Forestry, as can Reddened and Omega bees. However, this is the only method of obtaining them in all packs except Retro SSP/SMP.
