For the pet summoning item dropped by Queen Bee in Master mode, see Sparkling Honey.

The Nectar is a pre-Hardmode pet-summoning item that summons a Baby Hornet pet that follows the player around. This pet will not teleport to the player when it is far away. The Nectar is dropped by Queen Bee with a 6.67*1/15 (6.67%) / 11.11*1/9 (11.11%) chance.


  • This pet is not affected by liquids but will play a "splashing" sound when entering any liquid.


  • In real life, only adult hornets feed on nectar, along with plant foods rich in sugar, and only attack and kill other insects to feed to their offspring. Hornet larvae then produce a sweet secretion, containing sugars and other essential nutrients, that is consumed by adult workers and queens.
