Q. How do you get honey from bees in Minecraft?


Surprisingly, harvesting honey is not the primary usage of bee nests in Minecraft. However, it is still harvestable. Just smoke out the nest with a campfire and use shears to harvest honeycombs! These cannot be eaten however and are most useful for creating artificial Bees Nests.
