The Apiarist's Almanac gives the following hint:
Formed when a hybrid of Artifex and Diluculum have their lifespan pushed to the absolute maximum..

When asking Dr Beenjamin BhD for a hint he says the following:
Well, if you're so sure they exist, how about you try breeding one of these 'Heralds of the Hivemother' with a Worker bee? Next you'll be telling me you can teleport!
