That's how their looks differ from the "normal" bees
Appearance: Just like above, more reddish-black than the usual bee colors. Maybe they could be a little longer, but less round (more squished if you will).
Description: Based on the Trigona necrophaga species, these bees do not pollinate flowers, posess no stingers and eat only meat. They traded the stinger for strong, crushing jaws, ideal for cutting flesh (so they cannot poison anything, but can deal constant damage wihout dying) They are neutral to all creatures, with one exception - the undead (minus skeletons and strays of course - the have no meat left!). They will attack zombies, phantoms, pigmen and the like. Even though these insects deal more damage than normal bees, the undead completely ignore them and let the arthropods collect their drops. The beehives spawn rarely in the acacia trees. The vulture bees will not give you honey (they do make "meat honey" in real life, but collecting it would really harm the colony, so I think this shouldn't be a feature), but can be used as guards!
Why: I noticed general public doesn't know any other bee species besides the honey bee, which is a shame, because there are thousands of species all around the world - the vulture bee definitely being one of the most interesting ones. They can be also used as guards, as stated above. I feel like they wouldn't bee that hard to implement, seeing what the developers can do!
