Not the best way to tame but midgame (when all you have is a half decent argie cause you're Tring to build a base) an argue will work. Try to fing a low beehive on the edge of the redwoods. Clear the area of hostiles but not the passive or neutral Dino as these can naturally kill aggressive dinos and block spawn spots. Sprint to the beehive then hit it. When the cloud of bees emerges lure it away from the bee hive land facing them and kill them. Rince and repeat. You will get hit a few times so be careful. Once it breaks put a rare flower in the last inv slot crouch up to it and and press the button that comes up. This might take a while. Happy taming.
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.
2021- tried several times with past tips/videos to tame the queen bee. Such a nightmare lol. Only thing that worked was breaking the hive with my dire bear, eating a bug repellent, then crouching below the queen bee with regular kibble in my 0 slot. Finally worked!!
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.
If you are playing on console non-dedicated server. Their is a bug where you’ll see loads of wild Queen bees just floating around. As well as invincible nest. (Or no nests found) I took advantage and tamed every queen bee I saw flying around.
