The space bees are giant bees that can survive in space and produce large amounts of space honey which they value very much. Their stingers secrete a neurotoxin powerful enough to instantly kill anyone with a single sting. They were responsible for the one of the Planet Express crew's death. According to an advert, they — along with other creatures that have "space" in front of their name — cannot participate in the Slurm Factory contest.

In "The Futurama Holiday Spectacular", the Planet Express crew revisit the bee hive in a what if scenario. In this scenario, the bees have fallen ill and the hive is slowly dying. They were also able to speak English.


The bees are reproduced by the Space Bee Queen.


Additional Info


  • The episode "The Sting" says space bees killed the past Planet Express crew but in the pilot it is implied that Space Wasps killed them. To be fair however, some people in western culture do erroneously put wasps and bees under the same label.


    Bees: He insulted our fat queen!
    Queen bee: You try keeping your figure after 10,000 kids!

    Bee: Black stripes, yellow stripes. At the end of the day, we're just a couple of darn talkin' space bees.
