Our Ark Survival Evolved Taming Bees Guide will help you learn all you need to know about taming bees and using them to harvest honey.

Ark Survival Evolved Guide to Taming Bees and Harvesting Honey

Before you start taming bees, you need the following items:

  • A Decent, Long-Ranged Weapon
  • Bug Repellant
  • Extra Armor Rare Flowers
  • A Flying Mount

When it comes to choosing a mount, any mount can be used but a flying one is recommended as they are faster and agile.

How to Destroy the Hive in Ark Survival Evolved

The Redwood forest region in Ark Survival Evolved has a lot of bee hives attached to the trees so that is where you should go. It is ideal to have a friend help you and provide support on PvP servers.

Once you locate a hive, attack it. When this happens, the drone bees will start chasing after you and you need to use your long range weapon to kill them. They apply a slowing poison which you need to avoid if you wish to survive as that poison can attract larger predators.

Once the hive has been destroyed, a queen bee will spawn for which you will require bug repellant. Use the bug repellant and then feed her the rare flowers to successfully tame her.

Ark Survival Evolved Harvesting Honey

Once you pick up the fallen queen bee, it automatically becomes a beehive which you can place anywhere you want. The ideal place is, of course, your base. Find the spot where you want to harvest honey and place your beehive. The hive requires some more rare flowers before it can produce honey. Place the flowers in the inventory and let the production begin!

You will still need to use bug repellant when harvesting honey to prevent the bees from attacking you. Once you have obtained the honey, there is a plethora of things you can do with it in Ark Survival Evolved such as:

  • Tame a Liopleurodon
  • Lure Dinosaurs towards the Honey
  • Tame a Dire Beat
  • Can be Used as Food/Bait for Fishing
  • Can be Used in Various Recipes across the Game

After reading this Ark Survival Evolved Taming Bees and Harvesting Honey Guide, you will not only know the method of obtaining honey but also know the various uses of it which will really help you solidify your chances of survival in the long run. Have fun hunting!
