How to get Honeycomb and Bees in Minecraft

Getting Honeycomb in Minecraft is possible by following some tips. The game received Bees and a new pollination system in one of its updates. The novelty allows you to grow honey and speed up harvests with the help of the animals. However, raising Bees is not so easy: it is rare to find them on the map, and they are quite temperamental with those who try to take Honey out of their hive.

Check out, in the following tutorial, how to get Honeycomb, Bees, and Honey in Minecraft for Xbox One, PlayStation 4 ( PS4 ), Nintendo Switch, Android, iPhone ( iOS ), and PC.

The natural generation of Beehives in the Minecraft world only happens in Oak or Birch trees, but it is extremely rare in most biomes (between 0.035% and 0.2% depending on the version). Only in the Plain, Sunflower Plain, and Flower Forest biomes do the chances increase to 2% to 5% per tree. An even easier way to get Bees is to plant trees with a flower next to them. This guarantees a 5% chance that the new tree will already grow with a Beehive under its shadow.

Bees always leave the hive during the day in search of pollen, unless it is raining, and return at night. During their journey, they look for flowers for pollen and return to the hive while pollinating whatever is on their way back. By manipulating the position of Beehives, Hives, and Flowers, the player can even speed up the production rate of their crop by having Bees run over their crops with pollen.
