Based on ilmango's suggestion in his tutorial, I have built a small bee farm in the nether. However, the bees seem reluctant to leave the nest. I've been waiting outside the farm for a while and they haven't popped out yet. I know for a fact that there are bees in this nest. Is this a bug, or do bees just not like the nether?
I think it's because bees enter their nests during the night, rain, and thunderstorm
Now the nether has no time (or weather obviously) I suppose that is the cause
According to the Wiki that makes honey farming in the Nether _more_ efficient since the bees don't waste time in the nests, they should pop out as soon as they have finished turning the nectar into honey.
Maybe the opening to the nest is blocked, they can only get out through the front.
