Many of you have contacted me about what bees mean in your dream. Bees are related to ants and wasps and we all know they sting and fly. They are so busy, especially when it comes to pollination, production of beeswax and honey. Before I analyze dreams about bees, lets relate some interesting symbols about bees.


During pollination, the bees are in a way, helping other plants to grow as they transfer pollen between female and male part of the plant, allowing them to produce fruits and seeds. Symbolically this can mean that you may train someone in the future.

The other important element to this dream is what type of bee you could see. For example bees live in colonies or hives and are available in three types:

  • Drones: Drones refer to the male bees and they mate with the queen. Each hive has several of them during summer and spring. During winter, there is change of mode in the hive and that is when the drones are not allowed to be in the hive.
  • Queen: The queen is the boss whom runs the hive. It is the duty of the queen to lay eggs which will produce the next generation of bees. She also produces chemicals to altar the behavior of the other bees in the hive.
  • Workers: The workers refer to the female bees whose main work is to forage for food that is nectar from flowers and pollen, she protects and builds the hive, circulates and cleans the air via beating her wings. The bees you see flying outside the hive are normally the workers.

What type of bee did you dream of?

Dreaming about a swarm of bees could be symbolic of hard work or having too much on your hands to do. If you dream about a queen bee, it could be symbolic of a controlling or dominant woman. In a dream, if a bee stings you, it could be an indicator of hurtful words that someone made to you in your waking life. In case of an accident and the queen dies, the workers will select one of new breeds and feed it with special food, the royal jelly. This will enable the larva to develop into a fertile queen.
