If you want to tame one, the easiest way is to get a dire bear and break the nest, because they are immune to bees. Use it to break the nest, then when the nest beaks, make sure you have full ghille armor and bug repellent, and tame it with simple kibble. You can then go to the bee and press the 'aquire nest' button, and it will give you a bees nest. You can place this on any natural ground, but no human made floors. Put rare flowers into it, and it will produce giant bee honey over time. Rare flowers can be harvested from plants in the swamps across the island, but beware of the creatures that dwell there. When you go into your bees nest to gather honey, you will get the bee effect and start taking damadge, even though it is your own bees nest.
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.
Just bring a good trike and stand back and whistle attack target on the bee hive, the trike will kill any bees that come out, once it breaks whistle neutral so any bees that attack you will get killed then tame the queen
the level of the smaller bees is the same level as the queen bee. so you can just attack it then check the level of the small bees so you know what level the queen bee is and you don’t have to break the hive/nest thing
My method to tame the queen is to be slightly back where you will have time to kill the bees and use something with area damage like a trike. Then i slowly shoot it down and kill the incoming bees eith my trike. I use a spyglass to make sure that im ready to aproach. Once the nest is in its one shot range i just get close and finish it off to start of the queens tame. Then i do the same thing with my trike and play a little gsme with the queen.chase feed fight repeat.
