Special Notes

  • Needs a Block of Gold under the housing to be bred.
  • Silky Mining will automatically mine ores with Silk Touch within its Territory while also ignoring the Y-restriction of its Territory. The rate of mining is affected by the bee's Speed and any external Production modifiers.
  • As with all of the other members in the Careerbees Branch that have an Effect, the Silky Mining effect will only work on a Silky Miner Bee.
