For the monster that lives in the Exiled Kalphite Hive, see Exiled kalphite worker.
[FAQ] • [doc]

Kalphite workers work for the Kalphite Queen. They are found throughout the Kalphite Hive. They cannot poison, unlike the majority of Kalphites. They will spawn from cocoons to protect the Queen from intruders if she is close enough to one of them.

Kalphite workers, like all other Kalphites, are affected by the keris dagger. They can also be assigned to players as a Slayer task.


Nearby fairy rings include: B•I•Q, slightly south east of the entrance to the hive in the desert. Don't forget a rope to enter the lair if entering for the first time.

A•J•Q, requires Death to the Dorgeshuun and a light source. The hive is through a door southwest of the ring and is marked with a dungeon icon.
