"While an outdated tradition, the gift of giving bees was a popular way of showing love at Hivemas, albeit at the expense of the Post Office's sanity."

The Candycane Bee is a Tier 3 Social Bee species found during the Hivemas event. They can be found randomly in the presents that spawn in the world during the event.

Like other event related bees + butterflies, the Candycane Bee is not required to beat the game.

The Apiarist's Almanac gives the following hint:
This sweet little species is given to all the good bees and butterflies during Hivemas

When asking Dr Beenjamin BhD for a hint he says the following:
Ah the gift of a Candycane Bee, a fond memory from Hivemas when I was a boy. If you look inside your presents during the season perhaps you'll find one yourself!

Special Produce

When a Candycane Bee is used in a Basic Apiary and fills Frames, they can produce when extracted.


  • The Candice spice can be used to make a mead that temporarily sets the Hivemas event for the rest of the day
