If you're pkaying mobile version,on the island map(I'm still at it so idk abt other maps),u can the engram "Giant Bee Hive",made with Chitin,Tatch and Sap.U can't place it on the natural ground or atificial ground though.So make a giant tree platform,go to Redwoods,place ur platform and then place ur hive on it and give it rare flowers to get honey.

Upsides are that there are no thylas in mobile that could harm it(or not since some dinos won't give a sh!t abt ur structures)and u don't get attacked by bees on collecting ur honey

Downside(or no) is that it's a midgame engram and could be a pain in the @ss at times u need it in the early game
