Bees are passive creatures that can be caught as they fly around, or they can be collected out of beehives, along with beehive husks and honeycombs.

Bees are categorized as a common ingredient, meaning that all apothecary merchants have a 36% chance of carrying 1-5 samples. In addition, they may be randomly found in some barrels and in apothecary's satchels.


Hovering bees typically spawn near beehives. Bees can also be harvested from both beehives and vacant beehives—vacant beehives are missing honeycomb, rather than bees. A quick way to harvest bees is by entering a nearby cave or other area with a loading screen; on return to the initial area, any bees will have respawned. In total, there are 27 beehives in 21 different locations, and 13 bee spawning sites (each of which can generate up to 10 bees). Locations with spawning sites and/or multiple hives are:
