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.
The honey is a must for fishing. It can be used for salmon, just like leech blood. I used it as bait for an hour and noticed that fish bite more frequently. In a pool with coel and salmon, I noticed that the salmon bit more frequently than the coels while using honey as bait.
When following the Giant Queen Bee its good to have a full set of ghillie armor, bug repellant and for some reason crouching seems to put you slightly below the drones hit range, as long as you keep moving that is. I used this tactic earlier today to tame my first queen and it worked very well
I'll be honest with you, taming these on scorched earth, Ragnarok and modded maps with scorched engrams and recourses is best, "why?" Because there you have flame arrows and flame throwers, simply shoot the hive with your gun of choice, I recommend anything but a rocket launcher or tek rifle since whenever I try it with those nothing comes out, then burn the drones with a flamethrower, it's most effective, once you've gotten rid of them run up to the Queen, jump, and feed her, that's how it's done, all the drones will tame to you and you should be good, then just obtain bee hive and once you get back to base place the bee hive and demolish it, your bee will come out just fine, if you want honey just place the hive and give it rare flowers, I recommend having camouflage on so they don't attack you, you'll soon get some honey for taming bears and liopluerodons, and making veggie cakes, I believe it's in megalania kibble as well.
