    The bee hive could be their workstation and they could trade honey bottles, honeycomb, crystallised honey (see wiki), wax block (see wiki too), campfires, bee nests and bee hives. Love this idea!

    Seems like a good idea! Beekeeper Villagers will lighten the village. Bees roaming around and having a villager harvest the hive in a Beekeeper suit with make the village better! Maybe they can "Trade" Honey bottles or honeycomb!

    Hi, I had a similar idea. What do you think about this?

    Could these bee possible? Anyway, I was thinking these guys would be a cool addition. Their workstation would be the beehive of course and they could be one of two concepts.

    1)Assistance with the farmers.

    They could tend to the bees so that they would pollinate and assist the village farms that already exist.

    2)Honeycomb/Honey Bottle Farmer

    They could have maybe a flower area where the bees would pollinate and then bring back the nectar to the hive. When the villager detects that the Beehive is at Honey Level 5 it would collect the honeycombs with shears.

    (Note: Only in the normal Villager working hours.)

    Trades: These would maybe bee some of their trades.

    Honeycombs, Honey Bottles, Empty Bottles, Shears

    Crystallised Honey? Wax Blocks? If they are added to the game/

    These guys would probably wear some kind of Beekeeper Suit. It would bee pretty cool.

    Thanks for reading anyway, and have a good day. What do you think?

    PS. Sorry for all the puns

    Take a chain mail armor piece in a crafting bench and surround it with leather, this way, if all 4 pieces are worn, the bees won't attack you.

    I really do hope this idea gets announced! Seems like a good idea to still focus on new things like the bees but also go back to old updates such as village and pillage! There’s still a lot of potential of going back in updates! Would it look like the structure I built in the picture?

    Came on to post this idea as well, beekeepers suit should have to craft it with white wool, no armour value against normal attacks but protects against bees

    And add a new building for the beekeeper... some sort of specific job housing for a villager beekeper? Similarily to how fletchers have their own specific house have a specific house for a beekeeper

    Seems to me that they should be trading in Honey based product and flowers. As well as tending to the hives and auto harvesting honey from them, which they would distribute to other villagers.

    Finally someone mentions this.

    I like this idea really much but bee suits can be elaborated on

    P.S. SystemZee covered this before

    They could trade: honey combs, hives, bottled honey, glass jars, and flowers. Each one could sell a couple different types of flowers!

    I love this idea, and it was one of the first thoughts I had while playing the bees update for the first time

    I was going to suggest this! I feel like without this the Buzzy Bees update just isn't complete. I have my fingers crossed for 1.17 or 1.18

    I have an old survival world I've been building since before the bee launch. Can we get some hives for sale from the trader? Something to get starter for a few emeralds?

    Some casual beekeeper clothes to wear for both player and villager would be super cool.

    The bee should not attack you when wearing this clothes, whether it's a full outfit or just a beekeeper hat.

    beekeepers should be a thing, things they could also trade are honey comb, and honey blocks along with some honey defentely

    Great idea.

    They should use the beehive as their workstation and collect honey once a day.

    They should not sell us honey bottles and honeycomb as it would make bee farm useless. But they could buy them and sell unique bee related items.

    Bee suits seem cool, maybe with poison resistance but very low protection ad armor values

    For all of you suggesting poison resistance, I suggest that with either new armor or enchantment, the bee cannot sting you at all, therefore saving the bee and the player. I also think that beekeeper villagers should sell honey blocks, but not cheaply. Similar to how librarians sell bookshelves for 9 emeralds and buy four books for 1 emerald. So maybe sell a honey block for ~16 emeralds, while the villager buys 2 honey bottles for 1 emerald, therefore making it impossible to make a profit of honey just like the librarian with books.

    This is a very good idea great thinking

    I agree. A few ideas might bee:

    Bee Affinity enchanted book sold by beekeepers to put on armor pieces, each piece with it has a 1/8 chance to not consume the honey level of a hive when using a bottle, and has a 1/2 chance to give an extra honeycomb when using shears. it does not protect against bee stings, because why would you get yourself stung by a bee?

    Trade honey blocks and honeycombs for emeralds with a beekeeper, trade emeralds for bee nests, wax blocks, crystalized honey (for CH trade honey + emeralds), trade an emerald for 8 flowers, trade an emerald for 16 glass bottles or a pair of shears, and some other things I haven't thought of
