How to Use a Beehive

Put on the Ground or On Top of Poles with Ample Spacing

It is suggested to put Beehives on the ground or on poles (for aesthetics) as long as it has access to the sky. Also, Beehives need spaces between them so do not cram multiple ones in a small space!

Passively Generates Honey

Full BeehivesEnlarge

Beehives will passively generate 1 Honey per 15-20 minutes it will accumulate until the Beehive is full at 4 Honey. We suggest checking in on your Beehive every 30 minutes so as to not let your Beehives reach the cap.

The Bees will also not generate Honey at night so try sleeping until the next day!
