As od right now, the Bees won't tame normally and often kill themselves just before you feed them the last thing they need. I feel they do this because someone in wildcard's dev team enjoys being a sorry troll. If this isn't true then they enjoy their buggy, glitchy taming mechanic far too much to give a crap. Either way, wildcard sucks.
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.
