I would recommend wearing a grass suit so the bees won’t attack you while your stealing their honey, another good option is to ride a fire bear while stealing honey because they are also immune to bee stings (they are mostly found in grass biomes in the side of mountains) (or anywhere on the first level of aberration) hope this helps, have a nice day😊
For the fellow mobile players: you have to get a beehive and place rare flowers in it to get the honey, it is made in a smithy (can’t remember what level) and can be used to lure wild creatures. Hope this helps!
I assume this will work anywhere. But in the red woods I like to use pillars to build up until even with the beehive, then put a ceiling at the top, then attach ladders from that ceiling down to the ground so I can climb up to the top and collect the honey. If I don’t have a base nearby I make a bed or a sleeping bag so if the bees kill me in the process so I can just respawn nearby, collect the honey from my corpse and be on my merry way. If I’m able to, I also add ramps so that anyone with a bear will still be able to get up there to collect honey with them.
