Hornets: Hornets’ attack speed is increased by 15%/30%/50%.
Honey Bees: Honey Bees restore a bonus 2/3/5 health every 2/1.5/1 second(s).

Lore:
A corrupted land tainted by rune magic, this is the worst effect of the rune wars, yet it goes unnoticed. Countless years ago that war was fought, only to be finally stopped in order to save Runeterra. But the land remained the same in some areas. On the island of Ionia there was a village years ago during the rune wars that was home to the famous beekeeper Ashcroft. Along with the help of his daughter Iris, he cultivated honey from his bees and sold the it across Valoran. One day her father fell victim to illness and left the beefarm to Iris. Despite being so young she ran the beefarm excellently, that was of course until one day when she was collecting honey she fell through the ground and slid down into what was an underground hive of mutant bees. These bees were larger than normal bees altered by the rune magic left over in the land that the beefarmer grew his sweet nectar flowers. Unfortunately her presence was quickly noticed by the bees of the hive, and soon enough they began to swarm after her. Iris tried to climb back up the hole she fell down into but it was to no avail. The bees began stinging her and infected Iris with their runic toxins putting her into a deep sleep. It has been many years since then, but now Iris is waking up, she has been changed by the bees' magic toxin allowing her command of the bees around her. She has become their Queen, and she will stop at nothing to wreak vengeance upon those who mutated her lands.

This is quite a cool creation, although it is a bit similar Elise, the Spider Queen with her gang of spiders crawling around her.

As for the passive, I think that you should make it one bee every 20 seconds or so, and that each bee can poison the enemy champion, dealing magic damage over a few seconds.

And also, you said that "Bumble Bees die after stinging" and "Bees provide 1 gold when killed", so does that mean the enemy champion gains 1 gold if the bee stings him or her?

All of her different types of bees do get a bit confusing. The bumble bees do not poison, only the hornets do that. Also, I wasn't exceptionally clear, but the gold is only if the champ kills the bee themselves (last hits it).
I mean there has to be some gold reward, every pet gives out gold. And since the bees are so weak and numerous we decided 1 gold per bee is plenty.
Thanks for the feedback.

P.S.
We have been working on Iris for quite some time(before Elise was revealed) and do not want people to think this is a knockoff Elise.

Good Idea. Doesn't seem to work in the current Metagame though.
