The Honey Bee was released in Beta mope.io on May 29, 2018 and in Official mope.io on June 6th 2018.It is an AI animal which means it can not be playable.
- Spawns out of Beehive when the Hive is touched
- Attacks when somebody touches the hive or when attacked,
- Turns around and lunge backwards when going to sting someone.
- When it dies of thirst or due to losing its stinger, one Honeycomb is produced.
The Honey Bee is so far the only insect. It is yellow with black stripes, and a stinger at the tail. It has two large eyes that protrude slightly from the head, and cream-colored wings. It has small jaws. When it goes to sting someone, they extend their stingers and charge backwards at the person.
Despite how Honey Bees aren't playable, they can easily be manipulated. For example, if there is a bee hive close to or over water, an animal with a high breath time (e.g. Croc) can dive under the hive and can cause tons of bees to spawn and try to sting the diving animal. This can be used to kill a high level animal such as an Elephant or Dragon (Black Dragons do not take damage though), so when the predator is at low health, you can steal the kill. Likewise, if you are a Bear tier animal almost ready to level up, you could find a hive, get enough food to level up, and use your 15 seconds before you level up to spawn a lot of bees, and then you can level up to Falcon, fly away while having the Bees follow you, and have them attack somebody. However, stay cautious, as they can easily kill you if you are not cautious. Because being stung also makes you move very slow, a predator could also fight their way through the bees and eat you. Also, if you get stung, other bees will attack you and you can't use your ability to defend yourself.
If you are a Giant Spider, to get fun XP, you should place webs over the Beehive, and attack the hive. When the bees come out of the hive, they will be webbed. Then you can eat the bees and get fun XP. You can also use this strategy to eat the Honeycombs easily.
