How to create more Bee Larvae in The Planet Crafter

There are three types of larvae in the Planet Crafter:

  • Common larvae
  • Uncommon larvae
  • Rare larvae

For bee larvae specifically, focus on gathering uncommon larvae, identifiable by their pale appearance with black tips. At later stages, you will be using drones to amass sufficient quantities for higher-output honey production.

Their frequency increases as insect biomass rises. Remember, larvae tend to spawn near the player, so a strategic pause or a short stroll outside can lead to a fruitful collection session. There are several techniques you can use to create more Bee Larvae in The Planet Crafter, which I'll discuss more below.

Utilizing the Incubator to get more Larvae in The Planet Crafter

After unlocking the Incubator at 5 GTi, you can convert generic larvae into specific types, including bees. Place a larva, some fertilizer, and mutagen into the Incubator, then initiate the research and sequencing processes. While the outcome can vary between bee larvae and silkworms, any unwanted results can be recycled back into base components, allowing for repeated attempts until bee larvae are obtained.

While initially, you might rely on single larvae conversions, the Beehive T2, unlocked at 225 tons of insect biomass, becomes a game-changer. This upgraded beehive not only has increased slots for larvae but also boasts a higher probability of producing bee larvae over honey. This makes it an invaluable asset for those aiming to launch Insect Spreader Rockets or expand their agricultural infrastructures.

The Recycling Machine in The Planet Crafter is notably useful, allowing you to convert excess materials, including unwanted larvae or byproducts from T2 Beehives, back into useful components. This recycling process can be a steady avenue for obtaining more bee larvae, especially when combined with strategic use of drones for collection and processing.

Drone Automation for Honey Production in The Planet Crafter

A sophisticated strategy involves using drones to automate the collection of bee larvae from T2 Beehives, directing them into a Shredder Machine for automatic disposal, thus ensuring the beehives predominantly produce honey. This method not only streamlines honey production but also allows for the efficient expansion of bee larvae-based infrastructure.

In The Planet Crafter, bee larvae become a crucial resource during the Insect stage of terraforming. Introduced in the Insects and Waterfalls update, these larvae are not only integral to maintaining beehives and outdoor farms but are also required in the construction of Insect Spreader Rockets, essential for progressing through the later stages of planetary terraformation.
