We are now supporting the recent version of Minecraft 1.15 Buzzy Bees and its new features!
As with all major updates, expect some updates in the near future for better stability and bug fixes.

List of changes
  • 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.
Bee nests
  • Spawn naturally in flower forests, plains, and sunflower plains biomes.
  • Functions the same as beehives, but requires Silk Touch to be dropped.
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.
  • 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.

Spawn eggs
  • Bee spawn egg.
  • 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.
  • Removed Herobrine
