In today’s post, you will learn a lot about Bee in Minecraft. You can use the table of contents above to navigate quickly.

Bees Overview

a beeBees are new mobs that have added to Minecraft 1.14 (Bedrock) and 1.15 (Java). Bees are neutral mobs, which means Bees won’t attack you unless you disturb them. They will start to attack you if: you destroyed their nest, harvesting their nest, or you attacked them. 

Bee works in the colony, so if 1 Bee angry and attacks you, the rest of the Bees will follow.

You will get a poison effect if you attacked by Bees. This effect lasts based on your difficulty level. And after about 1 minute after Bee attacked you, Bee will die.

Bees also considered as Arthropods mobs. That means Bees can take damage from Bane of Arthropods enchantment. 

Just like Enderman, when Bees touch water, they get hurt.

Getting Honey From Bees

To get Honey, you need an empty Bottle and a Campfire. After that, try to find a full Bee Nest or Beehive. Place the Campfire under it and click it while holding an empty Bottle. The Bees inside the Hive/Nest will attack if you’re not placing a Campfire.



You can drink the Honey to remove the Poison effect. It also fills 3 Hunger Bars.



Honeycomb is another item you can get from Bee Nest or Beehive besides Honey. Honeycomb used to craft Beehive. To get it, use Shears on full Bee Nest or Beehive.

Bees Behavior

It takes 30 seconds for a Bee to collect pollen from a flower, and they return to their nest to fill it up.

They will return to their nest when it rains or night.

Bees also can pollinate crops. When Bees collected pollen, they will start dropping pollen particles. These particles can advance crop growth. Watch an animated image below to see how a Bee pollinates crops.

Click each Bee with your flower (make sure you see love particles for each Bee) and wait for a second.
