Lifespan

Lifespan is a trait inherited by Bees which determines how long a Queen will live. Lifespan can be modified for the current generation only by using certain types of Frames. The number of bee cycles is determined by the lifespan, each cycle is 27.5 seconds. Lengthy lifespans are useful for pure production strains, requiring less monitoring or cycling, while short lifespans can be used for faster generational turnover or mass producing drones to feed a Genepool.

There are nine types of lifespan Alleles. From longest to shortest, these are:

Lifespan Cycles Time (mm:ss) Species
Longest 70 32:05 2
Longer 60 27:30 7
Long 50 22:55 7
Elongated 45 20:37 5
Normal 40 18:20 18
Shortened 35 16:02 3
Short 30 13:45 32
Shorter 20 9:10 37
Shortest 10 4:35 76

Bee Lifespans[edit]

This list shows a bee's lifespan with its normal genetic traits. These are the default traits for purebred bees. Cross-bred bees may have different traits inherited from the parental generation. Lifespan can be modified through selective breeding.
