It would be very useful if you could mark bees by right-clicking them with a dye, so you can know which hive they came from.
For example, you could place a hive on blue wool and mark all the bees in that colony with blue dye so if you saw the bee you'd know it was of the blue colony, and not of the red or yellow colony. This can really help when you're trying to find lost bees, or if you're breeding bees for the purpose of having premade three-bee colonies on hand. Also, this can be used to distinguish your bees from another player's bees without tediously naming each individual bee.
In real life, beekeepers often mark queen bees or worker bees so they can easily pick them out, so this idea really helps to make beekeeping more realistic while also making it way easier.
