"Apis Petra secretes a highly acidic saliva which it uses to mulch out great warrens through bedrock. Curiously, however, they leave manufactured stone untouched - a relief to the homeowners of the Archipelago."

The Rocky Bee is a Tier 2 Social Bee species found naturally in Large Rocks when mined.

Although readily available, Large Rocks require a Stone Pickaxe, and so are not attainable straight away.
