Bees are a vicious insect that have appeared in Animal Crossing games. They appear in trees all year round for the whole day.


[edit] How To Catch

Bees can be obtained by shaking trees. Sometimes, a nest might fall out, and the player then proceeds to look shocked. These bees can be caught with a net, but the process is very tricky. After a bee's nest falls out of the tree, run north and then equip your net. This will make your player turn around in the opposite direction. Then, swing as fast as you can and if you are lucky you will have caught a bee. However, you can also run away to the nearest building from the bees if you do not have a net with you. If you do not make it to the building in time, you will be stung as a result.

[edit] Getting Stung


If the player gets stung, the face will swell up resulting in your character looking disfigured. Different neighbors react to your face differently. Some, such as the snooty type, will laugh and others with a nicer personality will be concerned and tell you to buy some medicine from Tom Nook's Shop.

The player will say this when stung:

[edit] Animal Crossing

"OWWW! I got stung by a bee..."

[edit] Animal Crossing: Wild World

"I got stung by BEES! Ow! Ow ow ow ow ow!"

[edit] Animal Crossing: City Folk

"I got stung by a bee! Ow! Ow ow ow!"

[edit] Animal Crossing: New Leaf

"Ow ow ow ow! I got stung by bees!"

[edit] Curing the Sting

Bee stings can be cured by buying medicine from Nook's Shop or turning off the game and reloading it. However, in Animal Crossing: City Folk, if the player has on a Mii Mask they will not exhibit signs of having been stung.

[edit] Player

When the player catches the Bee, they will say this:

[edit] Animal Crossing

"I caught a bee! Bzzz, bzz, bzz, bzzzzz! I'm glad it didn't sting me!"

[edit] Animal Crossing: Wild World

"I caught a bee! I'm SO happy...that I didn't get stung!"

[edit] Animal Crossing: City Folk

I caught a bee! Bzz! Bzz! Bzz! Glad I didn't get stung!

[edit] Museum

Blather will say this when you donate the Bee:

[edit] Animal Crossing: Wild World

I once thought that its stinger was a bee's lone defense, but... ...I've recently heard that they also possess terribly replusive breath! Of course, the gent who told me this was a bit of a rabit liar, but still! I would heartly endorse the following action if you see another: FLEE LIKE MAD! Stingers and bad breath, honestly! What monstrous little beasties...

[edit] Animal Crossing: City Folk

"It can be quite dangerous to receive a large dose of bee venom-- for example, by being stung. That said, did you know that same substance is actually used in some women's perfumes? Indeed! A potent venom and a potent perfume... Which do you suppose is more devastating, wot?"

[edit] Animal Crossing: New Leaf

[edit] Trivia

  • The Bee is one of four harmful bugs in the Animal Crossing Series, the other three being the Tarantula, Scorpion, and Mosquito. The only exception with this particular bug is that it never bites your player on it's own, only when it's in a beehive swarm nesting in an unsuspected tree.

[edit] Real Life

The type of Bee, the Asiatic bee, that is portrayed in Animal Crossing: City Folk is a stingless bee. This Bee is kept by farmers to use for honey collecting and pollination. It has the ability to survive temperatures as low as -0.1º. They can survive and fly up to heights of 3,500 meters.
