The Swarmer is a block that can be part of an Alveary. Like all modifier blocks for the Alveary, it must be placed in the bottom two rows to function. It needs substantial amounts of Royal Jelly to operate and can accept up to four stacks at once. Royal Jelly is consumed each cycle, regardless if a hive is successfully generated or not. The Swarmer creates Swarm Hives rarely, in a large radius around the Alveary. These hives look similar to wild Beehives, but are dark brown.

The Swarm Hive will yield a Princess clone of the current Queen and no drones, but these Swarm-generated bees will only live for a limited amount of generations in captivity. All swarm hive created Princesses will have the [ - ] trait after their name, and pass it on to any offspring. This trait means the Queen has a very good chance of not yielding a Princess among her offspring. The Swarmer will give you more princesses, but they will not stay around for more than a couple of generations and they are useless for breeding purposes.

Version 2.3.0.0 The Swarm Hive will yield a Princess clone of the current Queen with no drones, but these Swarm-generated bees will only live for a limited amount of generations in captivity. All swarm hive created Princesses will be ignoble, and pass it on to any offspring. This trait means the Queen has a chance of not yielding a Princess among her offspring.
