You consider using the beast again, but it’s a good distance away. You’d need several lures, and you’re not sure where you’d get them.
But taking a quick look around, you see another swarm of bees. These ones aren’t as far off as the last swarm, and you can see that they are, in fact, the same type of bees you’ve seen in the desert.
Something odd is definitely happening here.
Unfortunately, the same force that brought you and the bees here doesn’t seem to have brought any sweetcactus along, at least not within sight. They just seem to be buzzing around the tree. Perhaps their hive is there, or perhaps they simply haven’t realized that it isn’t.
Regardless, they’d be a useful distraction if you could upset them, or at least lure them to the soldiers. You did make extensive notes on them, but with your notebook missing, you’ll have to rely on your memory here. What do you know about desert bees that could help you out here?
