The Steadfast Bee is a type of Bee added by Forestry. This bee can ONLY be found in chests.

With FTB Ultimate, one strategy is flying around with a jet-pack looking for Obsidian Altars. Steadfast Bees can be found in the chests there. They can also be found in dungeon chests.


Pure Steadfast Bees require a Normal Climate and Normal Humidity to start working, and at least one Flower - a Yellow Flower, Rose, Buttercup, Cala Lily, Hydrangea or Purple Flower.


Steadfast Bees produce Cocoa Combs every 3.8 minutes. Note that production times are an approximation based on the bee's base production speed and the product's rarity. They do not reflect actual production time.
