Normally a Beehive will produce 1 honey every 6 days, but you can increase the production of the hive by placing other hives next to it. When the corner of four active Beehives connect, the Beehives will double their production value. You can increase the production value to 3 honey per Beehive if you make 10 corner link-ups or more. This would require at least 18 Beehives and a lot of space to place them all.
