The bees first came in the Bedrock Edition as version 1.14. 0. These tiny creatures are really helpful and can be used for farming work also.
They also provide us honey and Honey bottles, which are those food items that can cure poison. The honey can also be used to make a honey block which has some similar properties like the slime block.
But there are still some questions regarding them:

So, today in this article we are going to learn about all these points in detail and you can directly jump to your desired topic by clicking on the above directions.
Let’s start,

How to get bees in Minecraft?

The first that we are going to see about the bees is how we can find them in our Minecraft world. This segment will help you get the information on how you can find them in no time or in less time.
Bees are commonly found in the plains biome or flower biomes. They can be easily found if you go towards a plane region or flower region.
There are mainly two ways to find bees:
The first way is to find them in the plains biomes. Plains are one of the most common things in Minecraft and you have to go hard with it because it is really easy. After getting a plains biome, you have to search for the oak and birch trees because the honeycomb is mostly attached to them.

The second way is really simple and quick because, in this method, you just have to grow oak trees or birch trees. Bees live inside a nest which is called a honeycomb. The honeycomb generally spawns with the oak tree or birch tree.  So, if you want bees then you have to grow a tree which you can easily do with a bone meal.

Collect bones>Open inventory crafting table>Place bones in any cell>Collect the bone meal

There are some possibilities that the honeycomb with the tree will come into existence which means that it is somewhere based on your luck.

How to tame a bee in Minecraft?

Now, if you have some bees with you and you want to tame then how you can do it.
This is really simple but one thing that I want to tell is that if you have tamed a bee in Minecraft then it is not going to follow you and protect you.
I know it is kind of weird because after taming a mob, we can either ride them or they follow us and protect us but bees are not those types of mobs.
The process of taming a bee is just a part of the breeding process but there is way through the way, the bees will follow you in your Minecraft world.
You just have to take a flower in your hand then go in front of them. When they will see you then they will start to follow you.
The process is of taming is to feed them and nothing else.

How To Breed Bees In Minecraft?

The process of breeding is really important because it allows the bees to reproduce. By breeding the bees, you can increase the density of bees in a specific area.
Here are the steps to breed the bees:
  1. Take a flower in your hand and attract the bees.
  2. When they come close to you, tame/feed them.
  3. After eating the flower, they will come close and a red heart will start coming out of them.
  4. A new bee will be visible to you within seconds.

What do bees do in Minecraft?

After having a lot of bees, you must be thinking that how you can use them wisely and what are benefits of having them:
The first benefit of having bees is that they can help your crops grow faster. If you have some colonies of bees near your farms then your plants will grow much faster as compared to before.
Mostly we use bone meal to grow crops/trees faster but with the presence of the bees, you don’t have to worry.
Compatibility with Pistons:
The block of honey has similar nature like the slime block. You must be doing a lot of Redstone stuff and for that sometimes you need the slime block So, If you don’t have a slime block then this block may work you.
Honey Bottle:
Honey bottles can be used to cure poisons in Minecraft and it is really a good thing because if you don’t cure it, the result will be half heart. It can also be used as a food item which results in hunger bars to get filled.
