A Bee Hive is a mini-biome located in the Underground Jungle. It is made from Hive blocks and contains Honey and typically one Larva. Destroying the Larva summons the Queen Bee boss. Any projectile, tool, weapon, or enemy will destroy the Larva, generally with a single hit, so caution should be taken around Larva when one is not ready to fight the Queen Bee.

Notes[edit | edit source]
- If the hive appears to not have Larvae, do not swing your weapons under Honey unless you are ready to fight Queen Bee. The Larvae may spawn under the surface of the Honey, concealing the location of one or more Larvae. Destroying Larvae under honey may result in a surprise attack from Queen Bee. Breaking Hive blocks will result in the spawning of a Bee and Honey.
Tips[edit | edit source]
- Honey forms pools at the bottom of hives. The honey provides a regeneration buff, but it will greatly slow the player's mobility and make dodging difficult.
- Honey and Honey Blocks spawn naturally in small amounts in the vicinity of a Bee Hive, which can help in locating one.
- If the hive is large enough, one may be able to construct an arena out of it by clearing the walls of the hive and adding Wooden Platforms. This is not only useful for the Queen Bee fight, but also for the Plantera fight.
Trivia[edit | edit source]
- More than one Bee Hive can exist in a world.
- The size of Bee Hives can influence the number of Larvae. Larger Hives can contain 2 Larvae, and smaller Hives have a low chance of containing no Larvae at all.
