Honeycomb is rather easy to get by, but there is one major drawback: it causes honeybees to attack you. Collecting honeycomb from a bee nest would usually agitate the insects inside, causing them to attack.

In Minecraft, bees deliver poison damage in addition to sting damage, thus if a swarm attacks you, you might end up dying.

Honeycomb

Honeycomb is a handy crafting item in Minecraft, and if you know anything about bees, you’ll know that these all-natural treats are made by bees, so be cautious when acquiring them.

Beehives, the man-made replica of a bee nest, are the most common application of honeycomb in Minecraft. Beehives made of wood and honeycomb seem far cleaner and pure than actual bee nests and are much more available.

Honeycomb is also used to make decorative honeycomb blocks, which are ideal for use as decorations on farms. Honeycomb is one of the most crucial commodities in Minecraft, which is why a lot of veterans in Minecraft are so eager to get their hands on it early on.

Minecraft Edition Possible Locations Percentage of Appearance
Java Wooded Hills, Birch Forest, Tall Birch Forest, Birch Forest Hills, Tall Birch Hills 0.2%
Bedrock Wooded Hills, Birch Forest, Tall Birch Forest, Birch Forest Hills, Tall Birch Hills 0.035%
Oak or Birch Sapling (if near a flower) 5%

You may use a silk touch tool to collect bee nests in your inventory, which might take a long time to achieve early on in the game.

Place a bonfire underneath the nest or hive before harvesting it for the quickest way to get a honeycomb. It will make the bees dizzy and prevent them from attacking the player with inflamed eyes. This method requires smoke to travel through the top of the hive to function and you can get their honeycomb with a pair of shears.

Shears

Honeycomb can only be extracted from filled hives via shears, and the hive must have honey dripping from it for the honeycomb to fall. Honey can also be obtained by placing a bottle on a full beehive.
