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.
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
Sometimes when the hive is destroyed the queen will just fly in place. If you have a quetzal or a Tapejara you can fly up to it and passive tame it right there. I recommend bringing medical brew just so you don't have to worry about the drones. Make sure to feed your tame bug repellant as well.
Use dire bear as bee's don't damage them and use bear to destroy nest with ease be careful not to kill Queen and i suggest to use rare flowers as easy to find to tame Queen and you have your own bee hive
They spawn on Redwood trees, always lvl 5, break the hive with a flyer, the queen should drop on the ground, bring ghillie + bug repellant, you need 2 ichty kibbles or 5 flowers, the queen seems passive but the bees will attack you. Once tamed you can convert the queen into a hive (structure) it produce 1 honey pot per hour (not sure)
