The main purpose of tools is to gather pollen. Some tools have special abilities that help assist in gathering pollen, while some collect better from certain colored flowers. All tools can be boosted through the Pollen From Tools stat. There are currently 16 tools in the game.
Every player will start out with the Scooper. Better tools can be bought in different shops, with the Noob Shop selling the cheapest tools ranging from 0-14k honey. The Pro Shop follows with tools ranging from 40k-1.5 million honey, while the Red HQ and Blue HQ both have 1 tool each that can be bought for 3.5 million honey. The Mountain Top Shop has the second most expensive tools, with prices that range from 20m-150 million honey. Currently, the most expensive tool in the game is the Petal Wand, which can be bought for 1.5b honey and various crafting materials in the Petal Shop. The Petal Wand can convert pollen, unlike any other tools.
The player is able to auto-click their pollen collector by holding down the mouse button on a computer. On a mobile device, holding on an open part of the screen will do the same. Using Glue gives a 10 minute boost which grants x1.25 pollen from tools and bees. Using a Purple Potion can also give x1.25 Capacity, x1.25 Convert Rate At Hive, x1.5 Red Pollen, x1.5 Blue Pollen, x1.3 Pollen From Bees, and x1.3 Pollen From Tools for 15 minutes.
