These little guys work miracles when targeting bee hives. It only takes 1-2 of then with mediocre levels to RIP hives apart from afar. Then, using a grapple + crossbow retrieve the Queen bee and enjoy honey from the safety of your base. Honey is used to calm Leedsichthys, bake Sweet Vegetable Cake for taming and feeding Achatina which provide 100 cementing paste per hour, works as kibble for Dire Bears, and craft Extraordinary Kibble used for Thylas and Yutis among others. Aiming your crossbow just above the hive works well if the Queen gets stuck. Hope this helps!
Best tame for the time and narcotics. I have about 20 of these above lvl 200 defend my base.. They shred people along with my turrets. I also raid with 10+ of them. They make shooting at me impossible as they swarm people not their mounts. Use the spyglass to scope dinos or people and whistle attack target. It is an invaluable sniper tool.
P.S. Keep them close to your fabricator and smithy to level faster.
These little creatures are amazing for clearing caves just get about 20 of them drag them into a cave and watch them work you need to pay attention to there hp though there strength is in numbers so individuals can die
