Bees are enemies that appear in Crash Bandicoot 2: Cortex Strikes Back. They only appear in the levels Diggin' It and Bee-Having. They are found inside striped beehives and come out to chase Crash whenever he passes by. The bees can be defeated but the beehives cannot. In Diggin' It, when one bee chases Crash, he can spin it away, although another will just take its place. The best thing to do would be for Crash to run to an area beyond where the bees are willing to go.
In Bee-Having, the bees come out in groups, which makes it almost impossible to spin away all of them at once. However, Crash can hide in the soil. A great way to get lots of lives is to spin the swarm of bees in one go; Crash will get one life only if all the bees are defeated in one go. This can be done as many times as the player wants.
The bees make a brief return in Crash Twinsanity in the level Totem Hokum, where at first, Cortex is attacked by a swarm of bees. Soon after, a beehive falls on his head and gets stuck.
