Giant Bee Honey is a resource in ARK: Survival Evolved.

Usage[edit | edit source]

Honey has a number of different usages:

Honey is highly perishable and is best kept in a Refrigerator.

Gathering[edit | edit source]

It is gathered from a Bee Hive that is produced by a tamed Giant Bee.

Honey can also be gathered from wild bee hives, on a fifteen minute timer. Use caution, as the Giant bees could potentially come out of the harvested hive.

Honey can also be harvested with a Dire Bear at twice the normal rate without harming the hive or aggravating the bees. This is a much better method than harvesting by hand. If accidentally attacked through methods other than Dire Bear, it can act as protection from Giant Bee knocking off.

Notes / Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • Real honey doesn't spoil so long as it is kept dry.
  • Honey might give more health than prime meat in custom recipes, but it is still outclassed by the other cooked meats because they can stack.
