Bees are definitely dominated by their Queen, so the dream might indicate that you harbor a resentment toward someone you believe is holding you back, dominating you, or it might signal your desire for equality in a relationship. Most types of bees live in a very orderly society within their colony. Their work is solely for the survival of the community. They communicate by using pheromones and dances to signal if there is a threat to the hive, to help the Queen find her mates and to locate food sources. Because the bee is such an industrious being, dreaming of bees might point to your ability to stay steadfast on a project or commitment. To make 1 pound of honey, they have to visit approximately 2,000,000 flowers. Or on the other hand, it might signify that you are overworked or overstressed in your waking life. Bee dreams may also symbolize that you will become prosperous because of your hard work. The bees with stingers will defend the hive and the Queen to the death. For that reason your bee dream might represent a fear you have of something going on in your waking life or something that you are desperately trying to protect yourself or another individual from.
