"Decades of extensive breeding by careless apiarists have resulted in a species entirely unsuited to the Archipelago. Rather than allow them to suffer, many kind families adopt them as house pets."
These are the different Traits that the Domesticated Bee can spawn with.
When a trait has multiple values one is picked randomly when the bee is created.
Lifespan Normal, Long
Productivity Normal, Fast
Fertility Fecund, Prolific
Stability Normal, Stable
The Apiarist's Almanac gives the following hint:
An interesting Floreo and Somnolentus mix, this species can only be bred successfully within the safe confines of a house..
When asking Dr Beenjamin BhD for a hint he says the following:
Verdant and Drowsy bees can be cross-bred but only when inside a house. Speaking of houses, you can get out of mine now, thanks!
When Cross-Breeding the Domesticated Bee with the following other species there is a chance for the offspring to mutate into a new species!
As with all mutations, the offspring of the hybrid queen needs to also be a hybrid, so this can effect the chances listed below.
- *A "house" counts as just having 10+ walls within 100px (6ish tiles)
