Bees are spawned by Queen Bee in the same way that the Eye of Cthulhu spawns the Servants of Cthulhu. They can also spawn when destroying Hive Blocks. They can be a threat for beginners when mining hives as they come in swarms and deal rather heavy damage. They also can be hard to hit due to their small size, but for more experienced players, they are not a threat.
- Bees might be the smallest enemy in Terraria, making it hard to see due to their tiny size.
- Due to their attack and life being the same, wearing Turtle Armor will kill them in one hit without the player having to do anything.
