1.15, the first release of Buzzy Bees, is a major update to Java Edition released on December 10, 2019.[1] It added bees and bee-related items, such as beehives, honey bottles and honeycombs. Alongside adding bees, this update focused on fixing bugs and improving performance,[2] as well as adding numerous features that were originally Bedrock Edition exclusives.[3]



  • Can be crafted using 6 planks and 3 honeycombs.
  • Can house bees.
  • Fills up with honey.
    • The amount of honey in the beehive increases as bees gather nectar and return to their hive.
    • The player can harvest honeycombs and honey bottles from the hive using shears and glass bottles respectively.
    • If the player breaks or harvests honey from the hive, the bees will become hostile on the player.
      • Bees inside the hive will not turn hostile if it is harvested with Silk Touch, but bees outside the hive will.
      • Bees will not turn hostile if there is a lit campfire or fire underneath the hive when honeycombs or honey bottles are harvested.
  • Is a block entity and cannot be pushed by pistons.
  • When instantly mined in Creative mode, they will drop as an item if they contain any bees.
Bee nests
Honey block
  • Can be crafted with 4 honey bottles.
    • The bottles are not consumed and will remain in the crafting grid.
  • Stickier than slime blocks:
    • Players' jump height is drastically reduced.
    • Players walk very slow and cannot sprint on them.
    • Effect also works through non-full blocks like carpets and slabs.
  • When a honey block is pushed or pulled by a piston, it attempts to move all adjacent blocks in the same direction.
    • Works the same way as slime blocks.
    • Honey blocks do not stick to slime blocks.
  • If an entity is on a honey block that is pushed by a piston, the entity will be moved with the honey block.
  • Entities touching the side of a honey block slide down slowly.
  • Landing on a honey block reduces fall damage.
    • Fall damage is cut to about 15 of normal: equal to ceiling((fall distance - 3) / 5), or in other words, 15 of 1♥ for every block fallen after the first 3, rounded up.
  • Mobs will usually avoid walking on them.
  • Does not conduct redstone signals.
  • Bees will occasionally 'eat' from them if placed near beehives or bee nests.
Honeycomb block
  • Can be crafted with 4 honeycombs.
  • Are purely decorative.


Honey bottles
  • Obtained by using a bottle on beehives/nests with a honey_level of 5.

  • Removes the Poison effect when consumed.
  • Can be crafted into sugar and honey blocks.
  • Stack up to 16.
Spawn eggs


  • Have 10♥♥♥♥♥ health.
  • Live in groups near hives and nests.
    • If a bee does not have a home nest, it will wander until it finds one.
    • Can hide inside hives.
      • Maximum of 3 bees per nest.
  • Are neutral mobs.
    • When attacked, all bees from the same hive try to attack the original attacker.
      • The same happens when their hive or nest is destroyed.
        • Placing a campfire or lighting fire under the nest will make the bees passive.
      • Have an  Anger data tag, which defaults to zero.
        • When the bee is attacked, this tag is set to around 700 ticks.
      • When they attack, they give poison to the target for 10 seconds and then they die 50–60 seconds after attacking.
      • When in an angry state, their eyes are red.
  • Affected by the Bane of Arthropods enchantment.
  • Can be bred using any type of flower, including wither roses.
    • They will follow any player holding a small flower.
      • If the player holds still the bees will hover around them.
  • Will hover around flowers and will enter a "pollinated" state after some time. When pollinated, pale white particles will come off them. The bee will also have its texture changed to include dots similar in color to the pollen particles.
    • Bees will try to pollinate wither roses despite the fact that they are harmed by the wither effect they give.
    • When they pollinate flowers a small popping noise is heard.
    • Will return to their nest after entering the "pollinated" state.
    • A pollinated bee can accelerate the growth of crops and sweet berry bushes it passes.
    • After enough bees enter a bee nest in the pollinated state, the bee nest will be filled with honey.
  • Will try to avoid water.
  • Being killed by a bee sting results in new death message: "<player> was stung to death".
