The honeybee is a common bug first introduced in Animal Crossing: Wild World and then came back in Animal Crossing: City Folk. They do not sting the player like their relatives, the Bee.


[edit] How to Catch

The Honeybee will be flying around flowers or it will be perched upon them. Honeybess will not sting you unlike the Bee that you find in trees. It is fairly slow and will try to fly away from you when you approach it. Just equip your net, get close enough to swing at it, and then catch it.

[edit] Player

This is what you player says when you catch a Honeybee:

[edit] Animal Crossing: Wild World

"I caught a honeybee! Hello, honey!"

[edit] Animal Crossing: City Folk

"I caught a honeybee! Hey there, sweetie!"

[edit] Menu

When looking at the Honeybee in the bug menu it will say this:

[edit] Animal Crossing: Wild World

The worker bees are female. Honey is a natural preservative!

[edit] Animal Crossing: City Folk

All worker bees are female. Their honey has an almost indefinite shelf life.

[edit] Museum

If you donate this bug to the Museum, Blathers will say this:

[edit] Animal Crossing: Wild World

"The stinger of a honeybee is actually connected to its internal, eh wot? When it uses its stinger... the organs get pulled out. What an abhorrent image! I'm terribly sorry, but nature is not always family friendly!"

[edit] Animal Crossing: City Folk

"Honeybees are rather famous among bees for the impressive teamwork they exhibit, eh wot? I've even heard they will swarm over enemies many times their size in an attempt to suffocate them. I must admit, it makes them seem rather like a bunch of brave warriors... Even so, when I imagine a massive swarm of bees, a different phrase comes to mind... "BLEEECCCH!"

[edit] Real Life

In real life, the honeybee is known as the European honeybee. These honeybees bear honey and when wintertime rolls around, they act as a colony to survive. They have a queen bee who is the only fertile honeybee in the colony. Female worker bees first clean the larvae and the beehive and then they start to build honey combs. Female worker bees have stingers. Drone bees, who are the males, do not have stingers. Their main role is to fertilize the queen bee. They are quite useful and farmers keep them for fresh honey.
