"Forged in extremis, Glacialis is what the Hivemother intended when She created Frigidus. These bees generate so much cold air when working that they have been used by beekeepers as natural Coolers."
The Arctic Bee is a Tier 4 Social Bee species found by cross-breeding.
The Arctic bee is one of the few bees with a special Area of Effect that is active when the queen is working. Arctic Queens act as natural Coolers, reducing the nearby climate by 1.

Lifespan Short, Normal
Productivity Normal, Fast
Fertility Unlucky, Fertile
