Bees are common flying monsters found throughout Vana'diel. Not all bees are docile, as some will attack and swarm any adventurer who wanders too close. Not surprisingly, they attack with their stingers. In doing so, they will sometimes take their own lives as a last resort. Bees inhabiting the Quon continent are typically black and yellow, while those found on the Mindartia continent and Elshimo Islands are typically black and red, and are members of the Bumblebee subspecies.

Farming bees is a lucrative venture, as they drop many useful things. Their wings can be made into earrings and arrow fletchings, their stingers ground into poisonous powder, their honey is a much loved commodity for chefs, and even parts of their hive can be melted into versatile wax.
