By default, a hive contains 25 slots for bees. More slots (and thus more bees) can be added by buying a Hive Slot at the Mountain Top Shop, the cost starting at 3 million honey.

The price of each slot increases sub-exponentially. The maximum number of hive slots is currently 50, but Onett has said on discord that it would be nearly impossible to obtain all 50 slots.

  • This becomes the most expensive item in the game because of the increasing cost.
  • It is one of the items in the game with the biggest effect, as it increases the number of bees you can have on your hive at the same time.
