Beehives are naturally found in the meadows (Flat grass lands) or in the forests hanging on trees.These are used to produce 'Honeycomb' in the apiary.
Beehives won't drop anything unless destroyed with a 'Scoop'.These may also be crafted in Thuamium to increase durability.These will yield '1' Bee, the colour depending on the beehives colour.
The bees from these hives can be used to produce various 'combs' of different variety using an 'apiary' in which you insert bees in the correct slots and cause them to breed, thus creating a 'Queen bee '. The queen is then used to generate honeycombs automatically over time. It is advised to place flowers of any kind around the aviary to speed this process.
