Hornets would spawn, similar to bees, in Flower Forests, Plains, and Sunflower Plains biomes, with the edition of Jungle to the mix. They would behave similar to bees with hives and similar blocks, but they would be hostile. Unlike bees in the current snapshot (the first one with bees), Hornets would fly stinger-first at you to inflict regular damage (2 health) instead of poison like bees, although there could be a swamp variant that inflicts poison as well. They don’t lose their stingers from attacking you, and will fly away a bit and then charge again, over and over, attempting to kill you. Upon death, they could drop stingers, a new item that exists as a weapon, or possibly a brewing ingredient, you decide! Overall, Hornets would be good to balance out the good being added to those biomes! You could even make them look exactly like bees to make them even more of a challenge! There could also be more achievements to go with them:
•Mission Imswampable: Use silk touch to steal a Bee Nest from Swamp Hornets without taking damage.
•Enemy Of My Enemy: Use a Creeper or Charged Creeper to destroy a Hornet’s Bee Nest.
I hope you guys vote for this idea, because it’d be really awesome to have in-game to keep bees from Bee-Ing lonely in 1.15 (not sorry), and to make Bane of Arthropods useful!
