Wispy Bees are one of the bees from the Thaumic Branch. Wispy Bees produce Silky Combs (and, by extension, Silk Wisps) at a rate which is about 50% faster than that of Tropical Bees and at about the same rate as the rare and season-dependent Leporine Bee. However, it requires quite a bit more work to acquire, requiring mid- to high-tier bees in its resultant mutation. They also produce Silk Wisps directly as a specialty product. Their effect, Wispy, spawns Wisps near the Apiary or Alveary in which they reside. This can pose a great danger to the owners of the bee, but it also allows for farming of decent-quality items for turning into Essentia. It is currently unknown whether the spawning of Wisps by these bees disperses the Flux in nearby Nodes.

Production[edit]

Wispy Bees produce Silky Combs. These result in Silky Propolis and Honey Drops when centrifuged.
