Hives are boxes that are built with files for keeping bees. One hive typically consists of 2 colonies, or 16,000 bees per hive. One hive will require approximately 30 minutes work every 2 weeks to harvest and tend. A single individual may manage as many as 300 hives during the 4-month season, but this will require full-time work, all day, every day. This work may be shared out among others who are proficient in keeping bees.
One hive will produce 3-6 lbs. of honey per season and approximately an equal amount of beeswax. The ability also allows the transference of pollen to flowering plants, in order to promote growth and greater ornamentation.
Characters will beekeeping ability will be undismayed by bees or hornets; however, the experience gives them no special combat ability against giant insects.
