If the players want to collect Honey in Minecraft, they need to go through some process in order to be safe. This is because, Bees do not appreciate you stealing their hard-worked honey.

When the player tries to take out honey from the Beehive with a Glass Bottle, the Bees inside will come out and attack the player with their stingers. These stingers will inflict the Poison status effect on the player and lead the Bee to die after a while.

To prevent this, players need to craft a Campfire first. Putting a Campfire under a Honeycomb, will calm the bees down with the Smoke, and then the players can simply click on the Honeycomb with the empty Glass Bottle to get Honey!

But, players also have to look out for the capacity of the honey inside the Beehive before attempting to collect. The honey flowing from the Beehive on the sides will indicate that the Hive is full of honey.
