The scout offers you the possibility to train one or more special bees which are able to anticipate imminent attacks and report to you and your beehive when the attack will take place. That way even as a non-premium member you have the chance to better prepare for imminent attacks. Premium users will receive this attack warnings automatically.
Your scout also acts as a guard bee and can, like your „normal“ guard bees, defeat espionage and sabotage attacks. The scout, however, is used only when no more other guard bees are available.
The scouts, because of their special features, will cost you 1,000 honey in addition to 5 Gelee Royal. The training lasts, like with the other bees, 20 minutes. Since you can be attacked only from the 5th level of your Chamber of the Queen you can train a scout only from this level on.
