"In most land-based bees rain, and even mist, can impede their ability to fly. Not so the 'Misty' bee, which has developed water-repellent bristles, allowing them to fly unimpeded by moisture."
The Misty Bee is a Tier 2 species found by cross-breeding.
It is the first species found from cross-breeding that requires a specific weather to be active when the parent queen dies.
These are the different Traits that the Misty Bee can spawn with.
When a trait has multiple values one is picked randomly when the bee is created.
Productivity Slow, Normal
Fertility Unlucky, Fertile
The Apiarist's Almanac gives the following hint:
This species can only be found when it's raining, a quirk of nature likely due to its Paene and Silva ancestry.
When asking Beenjamin for a hint he says the following:
Verge and Forest bees can be cross-bred into a new species, but only if it's raining. Anyone knows that!
- A common "gotcha" with this bee for new players is not understanding that all traits of hybrid queens are inherited based on a mix of both input bees. This means if you crossed a natural Verge and natural Forest, there's only a 50% chance the resulting hybrid queen will be "rain-loving".
