"Known as the Hivemother's 'little helpers', this is an incredibly shy species that only emerge from hiding when all humans nearby are sleeping."

The Dream Bee is a Tier 2 Social Bee species found by cross-breeding.

It is the first species found from cross-breeding that requires a player-specific action to be occurring.

The Apiarist's Almanac gives the following hint:
An extremely shy species - modern reports are limited to this species being sighted while people have been sleeping or napping.

When asking Dr Beenjamin BhD for a hint he says the following:
I have to admit you're doing better than I thought. I'll let you in on a secret. Dream bees DO exist - the trick is you just have to make sure you're asleep when the offspring are formed. If you tell anyone, I will deny it..

When Cross-Breeding the Dream 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.
