"Used to breed bees and produce Honeycomb. Bees in a natural hive cannot be crossbred."
Beehives are naturally occurring hives that the player can find in the world! Different colours of beehives can be found in different Biomes, but ultimately the functionality of beehives are the same regardless.

Beehives are the starting point for beekeeping in the game, and act as an introduction to the concept of making queens and getting produce from bees. Two bees can be put in the input slots to be bred into a Queen, which will then slowly produce Honeycomb based on their Productivity trait.
When the Queen's Lifespan comes to an end, offspring will be produced in the output slots. In natural beehives, these offspring will be genetically identical to the Queen.
Natural beehives are useful in the fact that you cannot Cross-Breed bees in them, meaning whatever bee is put in the first slot of a beehive will essentially be "cloned" from a genetics standpoint. This is good for producing more of a specific type of bee without risking it being changed due to Trait inheritence.
