Bees are small flying enemies that are spawned by the Queen Bee boss in the Underground Jungle, and will also appear when destroying a Beehive and occasionally when mining Hive blocks that make up the Bee Hive biomes. They are not to be confused with summoned bees from the Bee Gun, the Bee Keeper, The Bee's Knees, the Beenade or the Honey Comb – these bees are friendly projectiles. In Expert Mode, Bees will inflict the Poisoned debuff to players.
- In 专家模式, the damage done by Bees is greatly increased in Hardmode. This can catch players off guard, as Bees are normally easily dealt with at this stage of the game.
- Bees can attack other enemies
- They are one of the only enemies, along with the Servant of Cthulhu and Meteor Head, to deal more base damage than their own maximum life.
