In Minecraft, you are able to find beehives. It is a craftable utility block which has function like a bee nest. You are able to craft a beehive but of course if you want to craft it, you have to know the recipe and also the steps to make it. Here, we will give you information about it so that you are able to make or craft a beehive by yourself in the game.
Well, if you want to make a beehive, the materials that you need are 6 wood planks and 3 honeycombs. Now, how to make or craft it? You are able to follow the steps below. It is important for you to have shears so that you will not disturb the nest when you are collecting the honeycomb that you need.
- First, you have to find bees. They can be found in areas with a lot of flower activity. You are able to look for forests with trees and flowers surrounding them. If you see a bunch of flowers on the ground, it is a good sign that there will be bees in the area. If you see the bees, you are able to look under trees for the nests.
- Then, you will have to make sure that the bees fill up their nest with honey. So, you are able to harvest from it. You have to harvest some flowers from around the area and then you have to give them to the bees. It will be able to encourage them to breed so that they will create some more bees. If there are more bees, it means that they will hit up more flowers and also fill up that nest with honey.
- If you see the nest is dripping with honey, then you are able to harvest it with shears. It will be able to anger some bees. So, you have to make sure to have a flower ready or to run for it. You have to use shears because if you break the nest, it will not yield any honeycomb.
- Now, each of the nests should yield you three honeycomb. It is the exact amount of honeycomb that you need for making a beehive. Also, do not forget to put six planks of whatever wood that you got lying around. In the crafting table which contains a 3×3 crafting grid, you have to put wood planks in the first row in all three boxes and also in the third row in all three boxes. In the second row, you have to put honeycomb in all of three boxes.
You have got your beehive now. So, you are able to bring some bees with you to wherever you plan to be wanting to harvest your honey. You are able to do this by holding a flower and luring them to the area that you want them to occupy. You can put your beehive on the ground and the bees will get into it if they have got some nectar to add to it. You can plant a lot of flowers around the area so that you can promote their ability to make honey.
