From Sonic Retro
Bee is a badnik which was set to appear in Emerald Hill Zone. It's design is similar to that of the Buzzer badnik that also appears in Emerald Hill Zone. It attacked by firing projectiles from its stinger, also like Buzzer. However, said projectiles were capable of burning down the wooden log bridges throughout the zone, albeit opening access to alternate pathways.
In the 2013 version, this badnik can be placed in Emerald Hill Zone using Debug Mode.
Graphics of what may be a flaming log were found in the Simon Wai prototype. This could be indicitive that the Bee badnik was incorperated in the game at some point.
