The Honeybee is found above flowers.
The Honeybee can be donated to the museum. Upon doing so, the following text is given by Blathers:
"Honeybees gather nectar from flowers and make honey, making them integral in many ecosystems. The worker bees are females and the only ones capable of stinging, though that is rather rare. The hive does contain males, but after mating season, they are all sent away. Honey has been consumed since ancient times. Cave paintings 8,000 years old show people eating honey."
Upon catching the insect, the player will say the following:
"I caught a honeybee! What a sweet catch!"
