The Artificial Hive is a block from Ex Nihilo. It is used to obtain the Hive Bees from Forestry, Extra Bees and Magic Bees. To use it, the Scented Hive has to be placed in the world. It will eventually turn in to a bee hive, or it will revert back to an Artificial Hive.

Bees are particular about where they live. The Scented Hive must meet certain conditions to attract a bee. These vary based on the species desired.

Hive Spawning Conditions[edit]

When determining the type of the resulting hive, blocks in a 5x5x5 volume centered on the Scented Hive are considered. When applicable, at least one "flower" must be present. More "flowers" increase spawn chance, up to a limit. If multiple hive types are eligible, one will be chosen at random.
