Bees are coming to Minecraft


Bees are small, flying, neutral mobs found in plains biomes or flower biomes. They will go around the area collecting pollen from flowers, and will take it back to a bee nest which generates in those biomes. Players can harvest honeycombs by right clicking on a hive with shears equipped. Players can also get a honey bottle by right clicking on a nest while holding an empty glass bottle. Players can drink these honey bottles to restore 6 hunger points (FoodbariconFoodbariconFoodbaricon). If players collect the honey or hit a bee, they may become hostile towards the player, and they will have red eyes and try to sting the player, dealing 1 HP (9px-Half Heart.svg) of damage and giving the poison effect. If they succeed, they will lose their stinger and will die after 20 seconds. Placing a campfire under a hive will prevent hostility.
