"During the coldest nights, honeycore becomes brittle enough for the Excavator bees to nibble off tiny pieces and build their cells. Come springtime, these little shards start germinating into full honeycore crystals."
Codey's Notes give the following hint:
"This tundra species collects small pieces of honeycore, making it's home near the larger honeycore crystals."
It has a 31% of spawning.
When a Excavator Bee is selected in a Habitat and is given enough of the items it likes, they will leave when their visit finishes.
- The fact that the honeycore "seeds" can be grown implies the crystals are partially organic in some form rather than just rock formations
