The Larva is an object that summons the Queen Bee boss when destroyed with any tool, weapon, or projectile. It is found naturally placed inside each of the Underground Jungle's Bee Hives.

Larvae are created during world generation, and each world has a limited number of them, except for worlds with the secret seeds For the worthyDesktop and Mobile versions and Not the bees!Desktop and Mobile versions, where they can slowly regenerate anywhere over time. Once all Larvae in a world have been destroyed, Queen Bee can still be summoned via the Abeemination, a crafted item.


  • Players who are unprepared to fight Queen Bee should be very cautious around Larvae, as they are very fragile. Similar to Pots and grass, a Larva is destroyed with a single hit from weapons or damaging tools. In addition, it is destroyed in the following ways:
    • From hooks, even if latched from below onto the blocks the Larva is placed on.
    • From any minion that deals contact damage.
    • By creating a block on one of the tiles that are occupied by the Larva.
      • This can happen if a Bee Hive becomes filled with water, as it forms Honey Blocks when coming in contact with the honey naturally present in the Bee Hive.
    • From Fallen Stars in Not the bees!, where Larvae generate on the surface.
    • In some cases, by walking through it.Verify
    • The Clentaminator's beam will not destroy a Larva.
