#2 Collect 3x Honeycomb

Honeycomb is a unique item in Minecraft. They can only be obtained by using a shear on a Bee Nest or Beehive. If the honey level of them is 5, you can get 3x Honeycomb from a single use of shear.

If you don’t want to get attacked by bees while harvesting the Honeycomb, put a campfire or a fire below the Beehive to chase the bees away.
