"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.

Book2 Item.pngHints

The Apiarist's Almanac gives the following hint:
Theoretically, extreme cold and a Frigidus catalyst could trigger a defensive evolutionary response from the Pertinax species..

When asking Dr Beenjamin BhD for a hint he says the following:
Have you ever been curious what species would emerge if you could make the Tundra colder? Go find out. I hypothesis that a Frosty-Stubborn cross would be sufficiently hardy. What? Scared of a little frost, punk?
