Beehives Decaying Rapidly on Official Primitive Plus? (XBOX)

Recommended Posts

Sorry if theres already a post about this but I've google searched and searched the forums and cant find a solid answer.

I play on an official primitive plus server.  Just got two queen bees after the 99 update patch for Xbox.

I set up the hives in a small building in my base. But they are decaying really rapidly.  I have loaded a stack of 100 flowers in each hive but over the course of 48 hours they decay and despawn.  Luckily, the queen bee is still there so I just respawn the hive, but is this working as intended?

I leave for work in the morning with the hives at 5000 health and come home from work and they are at 2500 or less.  They are in the middle of my base in a cement building and nothing is hitting them.. (Besides maybe weather effects?)

I've read that with rare flowers in them they should heal up.  But mine steadily decrease at a rapid pace.  

I'm worried that the hives will despawn and the queens will die of starvation before I get home from work at this rate.

Is there an actual link or explanation of how beehives actually work? The wiki doesnt have much info on them.

As ark has pretty much abandoned prim+ it’s probably another bug that Will never get fixed just pick it up and get honey from wild ones.

So apparently there are two inventory options on beehives now. The top one is not for flowers and the one to the right is for the flowers. When you press and hold the inventory button you will see both inventory options, drop the flowers in the inventory on the right.
