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😊
Found in bog on genises when you ride on a bloodstalker spider vision will also highlight beehives. Recommend you bring a cryopoded dire bear for either getting honey or destroying the hive to tame it.
I’m pretty well set up, but just go In the honey cave on CI and hit a bee hive with a chain saw, let the ones in the area come, swat them down with the sword. I havnt used ghillie or bug repellent since I first went in there and realized I wouldn’t need it. I use a chain saw and black weight on a 2x server getting halfway through
