When on the hunt for taming a queen, note that not all hives will have a queen bee inside. If you attack a hive and workers begin to swarm, you've found the queen. If not, try another hive or kill off the empty ones for more potential tames to spawn.
ALWAYS break the hive with ranged attacks. If you choose to melee it,drones will continuously spawn from it infinitely, and they will repair the hive, so best to shoot it down and kill all the drones before attempting a tame. Oh, and the queen will spawn more drones periodically, so bee careful.
