The life cycle of a Minecraft bee

Bees in Minecraft exist in three different life stages: larvae, workers, and queens. All three stages can be found inside of bee nests. When a bee hatches from an egg, it will be a larvae. Minecraft bees spend the first five days of their lives as larvae, during which time they will eat pollen to grow into adults. After five days, a bee will enter the worker stage and will start collecting pollen and nectar from flowers to bring back to the bee nest.

Once a bee has collected enough nectar, it will enter the queen stage. At this point, the bee will stop collecting nectar and will start producing honey inside the nest. One block of honeycomb takes around eight minutes to produce. Bees will only produce honey when the Weather is set to “clear” mode in the World options menu.

To harvest honey from a beehive or bee nest, simply Right-click on the block while holding a glass bottle. This will give you one bottle of raw honey. You can also use shears to directly harvest honeycomb, which can then be placed in a crafting grid to make 4 bottles of raw honey.


In conclusion, we have learned that bees in Minecraft make honey by collecting nectar from flowers and then storing it in their chests. When a bee brings nectar back to the hive, they will deposit the nectar into a special honeycomb where it will be stored until it is needed.
