Exclusive to Green Island, the Beehives can be found in the trees where they contain tiny worker bees. These bees will come out of their beehive in an endless stream if Tails gets underneath their hive and target him, causing damage to him upon touch.
Since the bees are relatively small, getting rid of them can be tough and passing by the hive is not easy. The player has to use bombs to destroy the hive, though using Napalm Bombs on it makes it easier, since it will easily incinerate the Beehive and its bees. After destroying the hive though, the queen of the hive wakes up and starts ramming towards Tails, pursuing him relentlessly. To get rid of the queen, the player has to use another bomb to take her down.
Like every other enemy in the game, Beehives and queen bees may drop one Ring each after being destroyed.
