Skulking Bees are one of the bees added by Magic Bees. They are a major stepping stone bee, as they are needed for all mutations in the Skulking and Fleshy bee branches.

Production[edit]

Skulking Bees produce Furtive Combs as is the case with the other members of the Skulking Branch. These combs result in Beeswax, Propolis and Honeydew when centrifuged.
