In order for Nectar to be turned into a Honey Drip, it must be smelted.
Nectar Collector EditThis useful tool does exactly as the name implies; collects Nectar. It does so by right-clicking on a Bee or Honeypot Ant with Nectar in its inventory. This will make the insect drop all Nectar it is holding, and reset the size of Honeypot Ants' abdomens.
Nectar Collectors can collect 64 harvests of Nectar of any amount before breaking. They are made by crafting a Wooden Bowl and 2 Sticks together on a diagonal slant.
