Beehive is a functional building in FarmVille that is available at Market. It was released on July 12, 2010. If you logged in on the date it released, you'd get a free Beehive in your gift box. A Beehive can store up to 200 Bees, and 1 Queen Bee. One Beehive takes the space equivalent of one Plot and costs 5,000 coins and gives you 10 experience upon purchasing.
Some players are allowed to Store up to 202 Bees or 201 Bees.
If a beehive is deleted from a farm it must be built again. After rebuilding the farmer will find that the bees, queen and worker, are still there.
A Queen Bee is required for every hive. To get one you can either purchase one in the Market for 10 cash, or plant flowers or fertilize your neighbors' flower crops (0.06% chance). After finding or purchasing the Queen Bee, the farmer can start putting Honeybees into their Beehive.
One can buy Honeybees in batches of 5 for 5 cash or you can receive a single Honeybee as a gift. Purchasing Honeybees gives no XP. Selling bees in batches of 5 earns only 50 coins. The hive needs to be checked every other day or bees will begin fleeing your farm.
