    It should be smaller, the big bee should be slightly bigger than current baby bee and baby bee should be 2x smaller than parent bee.

    in my opinion the big bees should be removed and they should only be small and cute

    Bees in real life are very small. Given how small the baby turtles are in Minecraft I see no reason why the bees cant be smaller. Even around the size of a bat I feel would be a better representation. The bee shouldn't be about the size of its hive or it wouldn't be able to fit easily inside. maybe the bee could be around a 1/4 - 1/8 of the size of the hive. Overall though bees are a great addition to the game.

    If taking into account of the "actual" size of Minecraft bees, they're like a meter in all directions. That's crazy. Why not make them as smaller than bats? Or if not, at least as small as bats.

    They also shouldn't be able to breed like they do now. In nature queen bees lay egg which become at first larvae (pupae I guess they're called) and then bees, it doesn't make sense that two regular bee give birth to a fully developed smaller version of them.

    Alright - my opinion changed. the size should definitely be decreased at least a little bit. But at a  minimum to baby bee sizes.

    MY old argument was edited out it regarded the size of other minecraft insect mobs like silverfish and endermites

    They almost do not fit into the hive/nest, also they occupy so much screen space when surrounded that it is almost claustrophobic. I understand they are big because they are lovely and cute and it is hard to hit small mobs but adult bees should be like baby bees.

    On a side note: Bees can only procreate on the hive/nest, when they exit it it also exist the baby. Heart particles from the block are welcomed.

    they should be the size of the baby bees and when u breed them instead of a baby comes out they should go to there bee hive or nest then breed in there just like in real life

     

    that just my thought

    For me, having the large bees is great; I wouldn’t be horribly mad if they were made a bit smaller, but if they become too small it loses the “blocky” and fantasy feel.

    Here's a suggestion I made regarding the size:

    Yes the big bee should be size of the baby bee, and the baby bee should be even smaller.

    The baby bees don't even exist in real life since they grow in the hive as larvae.

    Adult bees should be the size of the "baby" bee, and the baby bees shouldn't even exist as they do now. Bee breeding should be a function of the bee nest/hive. Maybe it could depend on the number of flowers within a certain radius of the hive; such as when the hive is full of honey and there are X number of flowers around a new bee is produced.

    Also, I think the bee nest should be a falling block so that if it gets a block update it falls out of the tree and the bees fly out angry. You know, like in real life.

    If this happens make sure to make them faster as well, because bees would be a lot more fun if you suddenly had a crapton of tiny bees chasing you after hurting them

    Yes... Bees shouldn't be bigger than your head,  the adult bee should be the size the babies bees are.

    Bigger bee should be just slightly smaller.

    The Baby bee should be the size of the normal bee, and perhaps baby bees should be slightly smaller

    They're almost the same size of your head dear god

    I honestly like how big bees are, it makes them cuter and more unique. Like derpy foxes and macaws with head-crests like a cockatoo, it gives them a special Minecraft charm.

    I hugely disagree. The point of MInecraft has never been realism. The size of the bees makes them more unique and fun to look at. Plus, it serves a practical purpose, allowing you to easily see if the bee has pollen on it.

    Compared to Bats, and considering mobs can be even smaller then them, bees should definitely be smaller. Baby bees don't even need to be much smaller than the adults because they are similar sizes irl.

    So spiders should be smaller too? Large bugs are cool!

    I love the addition of another neutral flying mob. I think they need to be much much smaller though. They are too large and unrealistic (not that Minecraft is the pinnacle of realism, but at least cows and pigs and all of them are somewhat proportional). It takes away from the ambiance of the game. And since the bees themselves don't drop any items when a player kills them, their hitboxes do not need to be large. It would be a lot nicer to have a bunch of lil tiny bois pollinating my crops rather than some weirdly giant insect with creepy blue eyes.

    They current baby bees should be the size of the normal, and the new baby size should be 3x as small.

    I think the bees should be the same size as the babies are right now, and bees should be born as "adults"

    Minecraft.... bats are smaller then bees!? Please fix.
