Life Hacks for Video Games - How to Move a Bee Hive in Minecraft


Minecraft is a popular sandbox game that allows players to freely explore and build in a procedurally generated world. One of the unique features of Minecraft is its diverse wildlife, including bees. Bee hives are valuable structures in the game, as they provide honey and can be used to breed bees. However, moving a bee hive can be a tricky task. In this article, we will provide you with detailed instructions on how to successfully relocate a bee hive in Minecraft.

Step 1: Gather the Required Items

Before attempting to move a bee hive, make sure you have the following items:

  • Shears: Used to harvest honeycomb without angering the bees
  • Silk Touch Enchanted Tool: Required to pick up the bee hive
  • Torch: To block and control the bees
  • Lead: Used to tie up mobs (optional but helpful)
  • Building Blocks: Necessary for creating a temporary hive location

Step 2: Prepare the Area

Find a suitable location where you want to move the bee hive. Clear the area from any obstructing blocks or foliage that may interfere with the relocation process.

Step 3: Harvest the Bee Hive

First, use your shears to harvest any honeycombs from the bee hive. This will make the bees less angry when you move the hive. Approach the hive and use your Silk Touch enchanted tool to pick it up. Be careful not to break it, as this will cause the bees to become aggressive.

Step 4: Deal with the Bees

As soon as you pick up the bee hive, bees will start swarming around you. To prevent them from attacking, quickly place a torch on the ground. This will distract the bees and prevent them from stinging you. Additionally, you can use a lead to tie up any nearby mobs, as they can also aggravate the bees.
