"Many early Islanders thought this species was afraid of people, such are its secretive schedules. In fact, the 'Drowsy' bee is literally sleeping, restoring its energy for the cool hours of the day."

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

It is the first species found from cross-breeding that requires a specific time outside of just general daytime.

The Apiarist's Almanac gives the following hint:
This species is a mix of Raris and Silva, that has only been known to be found during dawn or dusk..

When asking Dr Beenjamin BhD for a hint he says the following:
Inexperienced beginners do find it difficult to time a Forest-Uncommon Queen to produce offspring during dawn or dusk, but experts like myself never have that sort of trouble.

Special Produce

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