How to Get Honeycomb in Minecraft

Just like in real life, the only way to get Honeycomb is to find some bees. Bees can be found in the meadows collecting pollen from flowers and returning to their hives. The bees are normally a docile mob until you interact with the hive or hit them. So be ready to fight them if you take their honey.

In order to get their honey, you’ll need to have Sheers. You also need to wait for the right moment to harvest the Honeycomb. Wait until the hive is at level 5. This is usually depicted by honey pixels oozing out of the hive and even falling below.

When the hive is ready, use the Sheers to interact with the hive to get three Honeycombs.

If a swarm of bees is giving you trouble you can bring a weapon with the Bane of Arthropods enchantment. The bonus gained from that enchantment works against Bees.

Now that we’ve explained how to get honeycomb let’s talk about farming it. After getting your first bits of Honeycomb you can use them to build a hive. Take the following components to a crafting bench to make a hive:

  • 3 Honeycomb
  • 6 Wood Planks

You can place the hive anywhere and bees will slowly come to it. To make harvesting the Honeycomb easier, put down campfires underneath the hives to keep the bees calm.

That’s how to get Honeycomb in Minecraft. With this method you can get loads of honey or just have a bee farm. Look for more advice in our Minecraft guides hub.
