The Drone Bee is a Resource in the Primitive+-DLC of ARK: Survival Evolved.


The Drone Bee can be rarely gathered by harvesting berry bushes. Creatures like the Bronto, Trike, or other large herbivores which can harvest many bushes quickly can make finding bees easier.


If there is at least 1 Queen Bee and 1 Drone Bee in the Apiary, 20 Worker Bees and 14 Drone Bees will be produced every 2 minutes. These worker bees can then produce Beeswax and Honey.


  • The Drone Bee's spoil time is double in the Apiary.
  • The same amount of bees will be produced regardless of how many Queens and Drones are in the apiary, as long as there is at least 1 of each.
  • After 258.0 patch, on May 30, 2017, apiary has been removed. Beeswax needs to be hunted down from the giant beehives found primarily in the redwood biome.
