SWARM CALL

Welcome to Mellifera Valley, where you are an aspiring beekeeper.

Here, you will be challenged to care for your bees, using your wits and resources to help them overcome the various dangers that predators, weather, and even mankind will put in their way.

Grow your colonies and establish new hives in productive apiaries, while managing their strength to prevent swarming. Cooperate with other beekeepers for the mutual benefit of all of the bees in the Valley.

The bees will reward a successful beekeeper with sweet, golden honey.
