Scout Leader Jaggy notes that before the Great War, approximately one third of all food consumed by humans was the result of honey bee pollination.
Bees are creatures that congregate and travel in swarms. These swarms can be seen surrounding beehives, found on the exterior of trees, rock faces, outbuildings, and on the backs of honey beasts.
They spawn after a player character takes honey or honeycomb from the hive, and may also spawn randomly in the Forest. There is often more than one swarm near a honey beast, and these creatures can spawn stronger swarms as an attack.
The swarm is made of a plethora of bees that attack the player character on sight.
